Baja Fresh Wahoo Taco

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.

*For those of you looking to get an even better deal, there are coupons you can get online.  $2.00 off if you spend $8, or $5.00 off if you spend $15*
