Ono

 

'Ono' is a Hawaiian word meaning 'good to eat' so this fish is well known for its taste. Ono are caught by Hawaii's day boat fleet and are usually landed within 12 hours of capture. The Ono is a surface fish that is similar to tuna and mackerel. The fish cooks up snowy white and has a texture like tuna. Ono has a smooth silky texture, yet is firm enough for the grill. In the raw form ono has many raw tuna characteristics. Ono's firm meat also cooks up snow white and has a tuna like texture. Served raw, Ono has a smooth velvety feel and a sweet, buttery taste. Fantastic for raw applications, great for grilling or searing. It's beautifully clean, jewel like appearance is known to convert even the non fish eaters. This grade of Ono can only be found in Hawaiian waters.
