Fun to Catch, Tasty to Eat! August is the perfect time to buy fresh Wahoo at Motts Channels Seafood. Wahoo is a saltwater game fish, appreciated by deep-sea anglers for its hard strikes and fast runs. Wahoo do not school as other similar species, such as mackerel or tuna, and are therefore less commonly found in the marketplace.
Its flesh is snow-white and offers fish lovers a mild flavor that is sometimes compared to the taste of albacore tuna. Wahoo is also an excellent source of high-quality protein.
Wahoo Preparation Suggestions
The fish should never be over-cooked. It is a firm white fish that will accept a marinade for short periods of time. It also pairs well with a fruity salsa--say pineapple or papaya. Although grilled is the preferred preparation, Wahoo can also be boiled (see recipe below), baked or poached.
For best taste, Motts Channel Seafood owner Gene Long recommends refrigerating overnight before serving. Great on crackers or as a toasted sandwich.
Four pounds fresh Wahoo fillets or other firm white fish
1/2 cup green onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup sweet yellow onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup celery, finely chopped
1 cup very sweet pickles, finely chopped
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
Six hard boiled eggs, finely chopped
Mayonnaise to desired consistency
Boil fish for about 15 minutes. Chill then crumble.
Mix together the first eight ingredients.
Add mayonnaise to desired consistency.
