How to Make Wahoo Sashimi

After reading the forum posts on Florida today I was pleased to see how well other South East Florida and FL Keys recreational fishing teams, charter boats captains and guides have been doing offshore fishing for wahoo in Key Largo & Islamorda. In my opinion there is no better way to end a very successful day of offshore fishing in the Florida Keys than eating freshly caught wahoo or tuna sashimi style while enjoying ice cold beer and wine with friends and family.

Seared Wahoo served Sashimi Style

Using a sharp knife cut the wahoo fillets into manageable size loins. Cover the loins with your favorite spice rub or sesame seeds.  Coat a large pan with vegetable oil or peanut oil. This will prevent the wahoo loin from sticking to the pan. Sear the wahoo loin over low to moderate heat until the outside wahoo flesh is just slightly cooked.  Take your time, it is very important not to over cook wahoo. The inner wahoo meat should be slightly rare.  When done, remove wahoo loins from the pan and chill them the fridge.  After the wahoo loin has chilled, bring out your inner sashimi chef and slice the loins into thin pieces.  Serve with wasabi and soy sauce. Don’t forget the wine or the beer.

Cheers & Wahoooo!
