The wahoo (Acanthocybium solandri) is a scombrid fish found worldwide in tropical and subtropical seas. It is best known to sports fishermen, as its speed and high-quality flesh make it a prize game fish.
It's fall and great time to go sea fishing and catch some Wahoo... My lovely butcher, Philip at Fresh Cuts Butcher and Seafood has been getting the freshest Wahoo around and it's delicious! I served with a Romesco Sauce , white rice and a quick slaw and it was perfect together.
2 wahoo fillets, about 10 ounces each
2 tablespoons smoked paprika
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
lime or lemon wedges
white rice to serve
In a small bowl mix together smoked paprika, salt, pepper and olive oil.
Rub mixture all over wahoo fillets and let them rest at room temperature for 15-20 minutes.
Heat your grill to 500F or a stove top grill pan and cook the wahoo on hight for about 4-5 minutes a side. Don't overcook it (it should be served medium rare). Remove from grill and let it rest about 2 minutes before serving it. Serve with lime wedges, romesco sauce and white rice. Serves 2.
