One of my favourite things about Abaco this time of year is that itís the beginning of the season for ocean fish. In March, the Mahi Mahi are migrating just off of Abacoís shores. Many fisherman make a living by spending their days bringing in, what I consider to be, one of the most delicious fish in the sea.
Mahi Mahi has such a great texture and flavour that it can be cooked in a variety of ways. Iím going to tell you about one of my favourite and simplest ways to prepare this amazing fish. First you will want to get your grill prepped, so that when the Mahi is ready, it can go straight on to cook. Coat the filets in a mixture of extra virgin olive oil, minced garlic, a little cayenne and some lime juice, with a pinch of salt and pepper to taste. Marinate them for about 15 minutes for the flavours to really sink in. Cook them on the grill, over medium heat, for about 3-4 minutes on each side. They should be lightly browned on the outside. Then serve with a twist of lime! You can eat this with a salad on the side, or serve on a bun for a delicious Mahi Burger with a side of home-made fries.
Cherokee Sound is a small fishing village about 30 minutes south of Marsh Harbour. Itís perfectly positioned near a peninsula with shallow flats on one side and the deep ocean on the other. The shallows are perfect for bone fishing and line fishing, and itís proximity to the ocean allows for amazing deep-sea fishing, just moments away.
Located in Cherokee Sound is Pinder House. A great deal for anyone looking for a quiet place with great fishing and swimming within walking distance of home.
