Mahi Mahi is a type of fish, and you should always be sure to eat plenty of fish. It is an excellent source of protein and micronutrients such as iodine, selenium, and various B vitamins (particularly B3 and B6).
The Fat Profile
It’s a fairly low-fat food, but the fat it does contain is pretty impressive. It is very high in omega-3 fats, a type of polyunsaturated fat (PUFA) with anti-inflammatory properties. Most Americans consume much more omega-6 fats (another type of PUFA with inflammatory properties) than omega-3 fats, leading to chronic inflammation and the list of diseases that go along with it.
Mark Sisson even labeled Mahi Mahi as a smart fuel.
