Corvina or Saltwater Drum recipe
Corvina is a nice white fish similar to snapper or grouper but less costly.
Servings 2 people
- 12 to 14 oz. fresh corvina fillet
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
- 2 tbsp olive oil for cooking
- 1 tbsp butter
Rub the corvina fillet with olive oil, then add salt, pepper, garlic powder and smoked paprika.
In a skillet on medium heat add the olive oil and butter and bring the temperature to about 350° then add the fish fillet.
Cook the first side of the fish until it is nearly opaque half the thickness, about 4 minutes.
Turn and cook until the whole thickness of the fish is opaque and the internal temperature is around 136° to 138°, about 4 more minutes. Turn off the heat and cover for 2 minutes. The internal temperature should now be at least 145°.
Serve right away.
