Indulge in a tropical island vibe with this white fish that pairs well with key lime and other citrus flavors. Mahi-mahi is a dolphin fish and even though it looks sort of like a dolphin, they are not related. Dolphins are marine mammals while the dolphin fish is a true fish. It is rich in protein, iron, Vitamin B, potassium, selenium and omega-3 fatty acids.
