OR Try This Wahoo Recipe!!!
We are BIG fans of Wahoo fish and with having lived in Baja so many years, we had many occasions to experiment with this fine fish…
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 Wahoo!

BEWARE: Please beware of the guys in the street selling boat charters. If you wait till the day you are fishing and go to the dock where your boat is many times people will mislead you to another boat or dock trying to put you on a boat that was not meant for you. You need to have a person guide you to your boat, who is from a reputable charter company. This way there is no confusion or misleading. Please remember when renting Sport fishing boats in Cabo that you rent your boat from reputable and established business. Walk into a fishing fleet office and ask questions about what you are getting and what are the costs? You don’t want to rent boats from vendors in the streets and you do not want to book through shady websites offering you the world. Check through travel forums about reputable fishing fleets to deal with. Look for testimonials about the fleet your booking, your charter with. Ask about what will the boat be supplying? Will it include beverages or lunches? How much does it cost to fillet your catch? Check to see if charter boat is insured? Ask about getting your catch smoked? Check cost of a fishing license. These are just a few things to consider when booking your charter boat. We will be talking more about this in the next weeks fishing report.
