Ocean Fresh Wahoo Fish Kebobs Recipe

Wahoo....wow what a great salt water fish and delicious kind of seafood. Amazing texture, firm, white, mild tasting wonderful fish. If you see this on a menu, try it if you like a firm white fish...its one not to be missed!



                                 Marinade is lemon, lime with wonderful spices to accent its flavor.


                                                                  Grilled to perfection!




Fish is a main staple in our household, since we've moved to Florida, we have had Redfish, Spanish Mackeral, Mahi, Grouper, Flounder, Snapper, Sea Bass, Snook, Bluefish, Trout, Whitefish, Shark, just to name a few. We were use to Haddock, Cod, Salmon, Walleye, Perch, and Rainbow Trout in Upstate NY. So this was all new for me to cook. Now a friend of mine, Jim, that had given me Mahi, has now given me some Wahoo. So experimenting again with this firm fish, here is the marinade I used to make these kabobs.. this fish turned out fabulous!


1 lb of Wahoo Fish Cut into chunks or steaks
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice and 1 fresh lemon sliced
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoons finely ground fresh pepper
Cooking :
Whisk together olive oil, lime and lemon juice, paprika, and red pepper in a small bowl. Place wahoo in a dish. Pour the marinade mix over the fish, place in refrigerator, and let stand for half an hour add sliced lemons on top. Remove wahoo from refrigerator, place fish on skewers or steaks directly on the grill and grill for 15 minutes on medium turning once at about 8 minutes. Use the leftover marinade mix to baste the fish while it is grilling. Serving suggestions on plain white rice or rice almondine marsala.

Claudia, your mahi is a thing of beauty. I envy you all that fresh fish and am grateful for the lake fish here. Grilling fish can be tricky and you have mastered it so artfully.

I really miss living in Florida sometimes,especially since it is hard to get good fresh fish in Central Texas. I envy you.
Never heard of this fish, but if I am ever back to the coast I will be looking for it on a menu. Great post.

Claudia, altho I have never heard or enjoyed this fish that is native to your Florida waters, I know that it must be sublime in the marinade you prepared and shared! Oh my gosh, thanks so much for sharing this grilling recipe to help us get out of the hot kitchens during this very hot summer! Hugs to you, sweet friend!

I have never heard of that fish, but I LOVE the name! You are so lucky to have access to different fish where you are located. The recipe looks like it would work well with fish available locally to me as well.
