JC,s Baja Wahoo “Mojo de Ajo”!!
We are BIG fans of Wahoo fish and with having lived in Baja , we had many occasions to experiment with this fine fish…
Ono or Wahoo, they are one and the same! Wahoo fish is the fastest fish in the ocean and it’s firm white flaky flesh is such a perfect texture for grilling. It is considered a prize fish when caught and is often called “ono”.
One important issue with Wahoo is it can be dry, so it is important not to overcook it!
A great grilled Wahoo fish recipe is with “Mojo de Ajo” sauce. The translation is essentially “drenched in garlic”. This dish is simple and a crowd pleaser.It is an easy and delicious toasted garlic butter. For garlic lovers,it will become a family favorite.
Also,keep in mind that this Mojo de Ajo Sauce can be used with any fish or shellfish. I really like this with is Tombo/ Fresh Albacore Tuna, grilled medium rare. We actually brought this back from our days of living in Mexico.
One important note, check out our other fish pages too! Many of the sauces and preparations work super for Ono or Wahoo!
