What does Mahi Mahi taste like?

You will love the flavor of Grilled Mahi Mahi dish because of its sweet and juicy flavor. This seafood dish doesn’t have a strong fishy taste like most fish. The texture is firm and we recommend squeeze fresh lemon over the top when serving.

It is one of the best fish to grill because it keeps it flavors and stays firm through the grilling process.
