Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Is mahi-mahi safe to eat?

Got a great couple fillets here for dinner, but on the way home had a nagging thought.  You know me, always with the over-analysis....  Anyway, I vaguely remembered a study or news article I read I think in 2011, about mahi-mahi fishing.  I can't for the life of me remember if the issue was that mahi-mahi was itself maybe unsafe for humans to eat, or that it might be harmful to fish for them in the first place, because of the bycatch.  I didn't read it in depth.

Anybody know if mahi-mahi is safe to eat, mercury-wise?  I'd hate to feed it to my wife and child, there are already enough dangers kids face these days.  ...or is it a matter of the way they are fished (bad in itself, but at least the food we have for dinner is ok).

Maybe I should just do some googling. but thought I'd ask here first.  BGEers have a depth of knowledge.  Amazing what they know.
Thanks in advance.
