In my last column, I promised you a most delicious, easy to prepare, and even easier to eat, pan-roasted Dorado in a butter-lemon sauce. Did you know that Dorado is also called Mahi Mahi? This is the Hawaiian name for the fish, and the Spanish name is Dorado. This is a true Dolphin fish; not the dolphin mammal. I didn’t know this, so I used to never eat Dorado, but now it is one of my favorite fish to cook here in Mexico! All of the ingredients for this recipe are available here in Sayulita, and fresh Dorado is especially easy to find in our coastal beach town of Sayulita, full of fresh seafood.
