Simply Grilled Wahoo

Another Fresh Seafood Idea

Wahoo fish is called ONO in Hawaii. ONO means “delicious.” And its delicate, white flesh is just that—delicious.

Grilling seems to be everyone’s favorite cooking method for wahoo.

Last week, with Barry at the charcoal grill, we cooked some wahoo. Simply prepared, with a touch of fresh lime and some smoked paprika, it scored a perfect “5’ on our rating scale of 1 – 5.

  • 1 ½ pounds wahoo steaks
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • ½ tablespoon smoked paprika (Pimentón)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

In small bowl, combine butter, lime juice, zest, smoked paprika, salt and pepper.

Place fish in baking dish. Cover both sides with marinade. Cover and refrigerate 20 minutes.

Place fish in well-oiled hinged wire grill. Cook about 4 inches from heat until done on one side, about 4 to 5 minutes. Turn and repeat on other side.
