Sport Fishing in Key Largo | Fantastic II Charters

Wahoo has been in high demand in the seafood market for quite some time. People love it for its high-quality, delicate and delicious flesh, and it is due to this increasing popularity that it may be somewhat difficult to find it in seafood markets, however, if you’re craving for wahoo, you can always book a sport fishing charter and catch your own instead of waiting for it to be available in the market.


Cooking a fish as tasty as wahoo doesn’t require too much science because the flesh itself is tasty enough to eat it grilled with some salt and pepper, but it does take some skill to cook it without losing its original taste to the other ingredients, so here is a recipe to cook a delicious and well-balanced wahoo. Enjoy!


Grilled Wahoo

What you’ll need:

5 wahoo steaks

½ tablespoon of paprika

1 tablespoon of lemon juice

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon lime juice

Crushed red pepper to taste



2 garlic cloves


How to cook it:

Place the wahoo steaks on a dish and add salt and pepper to taste, then dice the garlic and whisk together the olive oil and the rest of the ingredients in a bowl. Pour the marinade mix over the fish and make sure they’re completely coated in it, cover the dish with a lid or plastic wrap and let sit in the fridge for an hour.

In the meantime, you can light up the charcoal and prepare the grill. Remember to let the charcoals burn until they start to get white before you grill the fish, otherwise, the grill will be very hot and the fish will burn before it cooks.

Place the steaks directly on the grill for about 7 minutes for each side, remove from grill and serve with the rice or salad of your choice.
