Corvina is now more available than it was a decade ago. But you probably won't find it at your local Jewel or Mariano's. It Is a delicious firm, mild, and sweet fish. To us, corvina is special, and if you haven't tried it yet, we suggest you make a point of it this time.
Corvina is a generic name for a large number of fish in the Sciaenidae family, which includes both croakers and drum fish. (Those common names reflect the sounds each fish makes: Croakers croak while drum make a beating or drumming sound.)
You can prepare corvina in a number of ways: as ceviche, baked, broiled, grilled, and sautéed. Low to moderate mercury. Kosher.
