Make sure you wash the fish thoroughly before you season it. I was fortunate enough to this croaker already gutted out and cleaned so I didn’t have to do much work.

Croakers are very delicious!

Fried Croaker
Croakers get their names from a loud croaking sound they make while in the ocean. There are different species the black drum, the silver perch and the spot croaker. This particular one I got is the Atlantic Croaker. You can fry it, grill it, steam it, or stew it.

    Well Fred, this is a new one for me. I would think a croaker is a frog…but hey what do I know. One thing for sure…we DO NOT have this fish here!! They sound delicious…and the name is great too.

      Gloria, I’m pretty sure they have them where you live. They sell them wherever whole fish are sold or at Asian stores. Yes, the’re delicious!
