This colorful fish is also known as “moonfish” for its large, round shape. Its lean-yet-moist, meaty texture is a cross between between that of tuna and swordfish. Its pink flesh cooks to a white color and has a mild, sweet flavor that is not overpowering.
This firm fish is excellent grilled, but can also be broiled, pan seared, steamed, and smoked.
