Spice it up, Jalapeño!

I tend to get addicted to one ingredient and crave it for months and months. For now, it's jalapeño or any kind of hot pepper.

Seared Ono with Jalapeño Cilantro Sauce
served with Spicy
Jalapeño Black Bean Salad and Brown Rice
So for tonight's dinner, it is seared ono, which is also known as Wahoo fish in Hawaii, with a jalapeño cilantro sauce. I served the fish with a spicy jalapeño black bean salad and brown rice. Similar in texture and taste to mackerel, ono pairs best with a creamy sauce. I brushed the ono lightly with some olive oil and seasoned it with a pinch of salt and pepper to bring out the freshness of the fish.

If you ever want an alternative to mahi mahi or mackerel, I would recommend ono!


  1. jalapeno with fish sounds like a killer combo!!! :D

  2. never heard of Ono or Wahoo fish before, but as you describe it sounds delicious.
    Thanks for sharing Jessica

  3. Love the colors and that perfect sear. The ono must have been so flaky and moist. The overhead shot perfectly captures the beautiful arrangement.

  4. The Ono sounds terrific paired with jalapeno cilantro sauce, spicy and refreshing!

  5. Looks like the fish is perfectly seared and it sounds fantastic with that spicy sauce!

  6. Jalapeno and cilantro sauce?! I'm growing both in my garden this year. The luck! :-) And I love mackerel so I can only imagine how wonderful ono must taste, especially with a spicy creamy sauce. Yum!

  7. I've seen Ono on the market but never tried it. Thanks for the idea! Jalapeno cilantro sauce sounds so good!

  8. I had ono not too long ago with a sweet pea risotto and it was exceptional. I'll definitely be looking to recreate that soon - but before that - this one! =)

  9. We are fans of ono too.
    Your plate presentation is fabulous. Love the colors.
