Wahoo: A new experience. Served with Black Beans with lime and garlic + corn on the cob.
Wahoo is not necessarily a hillbilly shout out. The wahoo I am talking about is a fish. They probably sound alike, the phonetic pronunciation, but perhaps spelled differently.
I don’t know………I didn’t grow up around here.
My former co worker Chris mentioned he likes swordfish and also the wahoo fish best of all. (Chris writes a fitness blog, by the way. Check that out HERE)
As we are big fans of the swordfish, and Chris is an avid fisherman and consumer of sea creatures, we decided to take his suggestion and grill a big hunk of Wahoo.
I’ve recently read they have sharp teeth, thus confirming my belief that fish do, in fact, bite. Not a fishing kinda gal.
As with most of the family I grew up with, I am a non-swimmer. Never learned to swim and have had the notion fish can and will bite. So the water doesn’t hold a spellbinding appeal for me. I like to look at it and would consider having a Mojito poolside (if we had a pool).
But I do like to eat fish. I like grilled fish very much and I am a fan of Bonefish Grill.
So, It was brushed with olive oil and sea salt used liberally before plopping it on the charcoal grill.
Served here with black beans with lime and garlic, corn on the cob.
Leftovers mean fish tacos….or stew. We’ll see.
My personal verdict on this fish is that it’s quite dense and you do not need a large quantity of it. Swordfish is also dense and between the two, I like the swordfish more. But this was good and quite solid for grilling.
Thanks for the suggestion Chris.
Thinking of redesigning the site here......but I will be back in a few days regardless.
Hope you all are having good weather - someone please take some of our rain!!
