How to Cook Ono Fish


You might know Ono fish as Wahoo, Kingfish or tiger fish. With a name meaning "good to eat" in Hawaiian, Ono has a mild, slightly sweet flavor and flesh that is white when cooked. You can find Ono year-round in coastal fish markets on the Pacific and the Atlantic, especially in sub-tropical areas. Filets are also sold frozen. There are many ways to cook Ono; one of the simplest is to grill it with a seasoned rub.

Things You'll Need

  • Olive oil
  • Paprika
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Lemon juice
  • Heat and prepare your grill.

  • Drizzle the Ono fillets with olive oil, and rub to coat both sides.

  • Combine about 1 tbsp. paprika, 1 tsp. of black pepper and salt to taste. Rub the mixture onto the Ono fillets.

  • Drizzle the Ono fillets with lemon juice.

  • Grill over high heat for about six minutes per side for 1-inch fillets, longer if the fillets are thicker, until it reaches medium doneness.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can use any spices or a combination of spices for the fish rub. Fresh herbs such as basil and cilantro should be added at the end so it doesn't burn.
  • Do not overcook the Ono; it should not be cooked to well done, as that will result in a dry fillet.
