One of the great gifts of the spring and summer fishing seasons is mahi-mahi, plentiful in Venice, LA starting in April and going through August. This fresh catch has a lean flesh with a mild, sweet flavor, moderately firm in texture with large, moist flakes. Fresh mahi-mahi has a translucent pinkish flesh and bright red bloodline.
