While corvina is more available now than it was a decade ago, 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. If you like redfish and meagre, you will probably like this too.
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.
