Mahi-mahi, also known as dorado and dolphinfish, is fast-growing, quickly maturing, and abundant worldwide. Though widespread even in temperate waters, the mahi-mahi favors a warmer environment; in the southwest Atlantic Ocean, it's pursued by humans for sport as well as food. Mature males display a distinctive squarish profile, the result of a bony crest that, one imagines, would not affect the flavor of your grilled filet.
My mahi-mahi sandwich ($12) was a shorty, but the chunks of fish were much fatter than this overhead shot reveals. In this view, it's even harder to tell that the cole slaw was laced with pineapple.
