I guess you must be in a third world country. Catching dolphin is banned in most westernized countries. You cook it like tuna, I guess.

Perhaps you could sell your computer or look for a less expensive internet provider which would give you more money to spend on food.

Though I do not think I would eat any type of dolphin, the dolphin fish, also known as mahi mahi, dorado,or other local names, is not an endangered species. They are a common sport and food fish found in all temperate seas and the tropics. There are other species of dolphins that are endangered, especially those dolphins that thrive in rivers.

  1. I’m sure you’re just faking this question to get a lot of questions.
    How do you get on a computer if you are poor? And if you dont even know how to speak English, how did you get on this site. AND, why didn’t you just google how to cook dolphins.?

    And one more thing, please don’t eat dolphins. They’re beautiful creatures that deserve to live. Not to be captured and eaten. I’m pretty sure it’s illegal anyways. Okay? Have fun getting arrested. Have fun with all your fake questions.

  2. Eat it like sushi.

  3. How to Cook Dolphin Fish.Though often confused with the playful aquatic mammal most people are familiar with, the dolphin sold in restaurants and grocery stores is actually a completely unrelated animal. Dolphin, or mahi mahi, is a large saltwater fish native to the warm waters of Florida, Georgia, the Caribbean and parts of the Pacific, where it’s commonly hunted both commercially and for sport. Dolphin has a firm, sweet, mild-tasting flesh and holds up well as a steak or a fillet. Dolphin does best with dry cooking methods, the best of which is arguably grilling. If the weather or equipment doesn’t permit, broiling is a handy substitute.

    Things You’ll Need

    6 skinned dolphin fillets
    Salt and pepper to taste
    1 cup lime or lemon juice
    1 cup orange juice
    1/4 cup green onions
    2 cloves fresh garlic
    3 tbsp. sugar
    1 gallon-size plastic zipper bag
    1/3 cup vegetable oil
    Long tongs

    1 Heat the lemon juice, orange juice and sugar in a small pot until the sugar dissolves. Allow the mixture to cool.
    2 Chop the garlic finely — or put it through a garlic press — and roughly chop the green onions and cilantro.
    3 Add the fish, lemon juice mixture, green onions, cilantro and garlic to the plastic zipper bag, and seal it tightly. Refrigerate for at least an hour, but not for longer than six hours.
    4 Set the grill to high heat, or preheat your broiler if you are using one. If you are using a grill, fill a small bowl with vegetable oil and fold up a napkin in four. When the grill is heated, use the tongs to dip the napkin in the oil and spread the oil over the grill; this will keep the fish from sticking.
    5 Drain the marinade from the fish completely, and discard it. Remove any cilantro or onions. Sprinkle the fish with salt and pepper.
    6 Place the fish on the grill. Grill it on each side for about four minutes, or it fish flakes when poked with a fork. If you’re broiling your fish, place it about 4 inches from the broiler for four minutes on each side.

    Tips and Warnings
    Serve the fish with mango salsa and rice, a spinach salad with mandarin oranges and walnuts, or a fresh citrus fruit salad. Use any marinade you like — just stick with one that’s fresh and light. You don’t have to use a marinade at all. Seafood seasoning, a fresh herb and butter rub, or plain salt and pepper work well for this fish. The most common mistake people make when cooking fish is overcooking. Dolphin cooks quickly, so don’t leave it unattended. When cooked, dolphin should be flaky and firm, yet pliable to the touch.
    Mahi Mahi, Dolphin Fish
    Preparation, uses, and tips

    The secret to successful mahi mahi cookery is to not overcook. Whichever of the following cooking methods you choose, your mahi mahi will be cooked when its flesh becomes opaque but is still moist on the inside.


    Rinse fish and pat dry with a paper towel. Place steaks or fillets in baking pan, brush with oil or butter, or cover with sauce made of liquid, herbs and spices, and vegetables. Bake in preheated oven at 400°F (200°C) until a knife slice in the thickest part reveals the flesh to be opaque but still moist.


    Place steaks or fillets directly on greased grill, 4 to 6 inches (about 10 to 15cm) above prepared coals or fire. Baste with butter, oil, or marinade and close the hood of the grill. For a large fillet, place fish skin-side-down on foil. Cook until opaque and moist on the inside, about 6 to 8 minutes for fish less than 1-inch (about 2.5cm) thick, and 10 to 15 minutes for fish larger than 1-inch (about 2.5cm) thick.


    Rinse mahi mahi fillets and pat dry with a paper towel. Place fish on a rack above a baking dish. Preheat broiler and adjust oven rack so fish is 3 to 4 inches (about 7.6 to 10cm) from the element. Broil, turning once, until fish is opaque but still moist in the center, about 6 to 10 minutes, depending on the size of the fish.


    Rinse mahi mahi, and pat dry with a paper towel. Dredge in flour and seasonings if desired. Shake off any excess flour. Heat frying pan until hot. Add butter or oil, place fillets in the pan, and cook, turning once, until opaque but still moist in the center—about 2 to 10 minutes, depending on the size of the fish.


    Bring poaching liquid consisting of water, broth, herbs, and spices to a simmer. Slip in mahi mahi, then cover the pan and keep liquid at a simmer for about 8 minutes per inch (about 2.5cm) of thickness.

  4. Well, ive had it so many times, but I always wondered how it would taste in a soup.. Wait. Mahi mahi, right? Right?! Not Flipper, okay? No! Noooooooooooo!!!!!!!

  5. Just fillet and fry like any other fish.

    There must be other fish available for you to catch, in most countries it is illegal to capture and kill them to eat, and you could end up as a poor person in prison with no way to pay the fines and they will throw away the key.
