This fish is meaty. As we have our first BBQ for the spring with a wonderful Ono grilled,everyone's first bite (or even Eliza at first SITE) says this is a meaty fish. And it really is. With rings like a tree in the flesh, running lengthwise, it is so very good. Our resident baker said, I never had a fish like this before. Flake it or eat it in big bites, it is not a shy fish. It needs you to take a bite! No smooshiness here!

So how did we prepare it? We started by cutting into three sections. We then seasoned just before putting on the fire with a plain and simple, salt and pepper version, one with salt and pepper and meyer lemon oil and the last with salt and pepper with sorrento lemon oil.

Best way? Sorrento lemon oil and salt and pepper. A good fish never needs more! And if we hadn't over cooked it, it would have been even better! One side on the BBQ five to seven minutes. The best way to cook this lean fish is by poaching.

Versatile fish that is especially good poached and can be substituted for Mahimahi in recipes. It is a lean fish suited to simple and brief cooking. It is also an excellent smoking fish, although the cost of fresh Ono often discourages this preparation.

Ono, the "gourmet's mackarel" (it is a close relative of the king mackerel) is usually sold directly to upscale restaurants in Hawaii and on the mainland, giving consumers few opportunities to experiment at home with this delicious fish.

Ono is a medium to small sized fish, growing to 8-30 pounds. 5 pounds of Ono usually translates to 3-5 fillets. It most readily available between the months of May and October.

Our special arrangement with hawaiian fishermen ensures that your fish is caught, cleaned on the boat, and shipped directly to you from Hawaii within 48 hours. The fish are never frozen and are the freshest you can get without being in the islands yourself! The cost of the expedited shipping is included in the price.

Please note we generally ship fish Mondays and Tuesdays to arrive before the weekend.

You must pre-order your Ono by end-of-day Thursday for shipping the following week. Please indicate what ship week you would like if you are ordering farther in advance. We will ship early in the week to ensure the fish arrives before the weekend. You will be contacted by e-mail to confirm your order.
