    Default Mahi Mahi from Vietnam -- What's up?

    My wife brought home some Mahi Mahi from Vietnam. It looks a great
    deal different than the frozen Mahi filets that we've been getting
    from elsewhere.

    Does anyone know if this is actually the same fish? In our case, it
    wasn't a "white" fish -- and it was chewy.

    Yeah. I had mahi mahi for the first time in a long time (at a
    restaurant) a couple of months ago and it wasn't what I remember. I
    won't order it again.

    Well the real mahi mahi is still here, swimming around. Still very
    yummy!

    Actually we have been having a surfeit of ono (wahoo) being caught so
    tonight instead of the traditional burgers and hot dogs at a friend's,
    we're having grilled ono in buns. Don't feel sorry for us.

    Ono is on the menu here lately - as a special. I googled for images
    after I first noticed it and they looked really ugly (the opposite of
    mahi mahi), so I've been hesitant to order it after my big mahi mahi
    disappointment. Since you seem to like it, I'll order it the next
    time I get a chance.

    Ono is a wonderful fish! It's light and flakey - not fishy tasting at
    *all*. You'll really like it.

    I've had a really hard time getting good mahi mahi to cook. A lot of the
    time part of it has an unpleasantly gristly/chewy texture. I've wondered if
    it is the way they butcher it...

    As Kili says, it is great fish. Ono in Hawaiian means <good> so the
    Hawaiians named their fish appropriately. It is light and flaky and
    not fishy tasting. It's a white fish. (Warm water fish- like
    Hawaiian fish are less oily and there fore less fishy. They don't
    need the oil to keep warm.)

    They are canning wahoo (ono) in Samoa and it is like pricey tuna-
    about $2/can but we love that too.

    Give ono a try, for sure.

    This still doesn't answer the question. Does Vietnam produce TRUE Mahi
    Mahi? The fish is not a white flakey fish. It is tough, darker, with
    skin on the bottom.
