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!
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.
