Wahoo. When I first saw this offered in a Taco at Baja Fresh, I thought they had made up a name. Wahoo, a type of seafood? What kind of seafood has the name of "Wahoo"?
After doing some research, I found out that there is actually a Wahoo Fish. In fact, it is one of the faster fish in the sea, capable of swimming up to 50 mph!
Wahoo is known to have a variety of nutritional benefits. Wahoo is an excellent source of selenium, potassium, niacin, phosphorus, and omega-3 fatty acids. In addition, this fish is low in calories, which gives you even more incentive to try it out.
I got a Wahoo taco at Baja Fresh the other day as part of the Catch 2 deal, and I have to say: The fish was pretty tasty. It was accompanied by a few slices of avocado, some tomatoes, and lettuce. All of this was wrapped in two soft taco shells. I also tried the garlic lime shrimp taco, and likewise, found it good. The shrimp had a "grilled smoky" taste to it, and you could taste the lime. Overall, the meal cost $7.99, which isn't bad considering they give you a side of rice and beans as well.
