A Different Kind of Drum….one you eat!

Corvina… a salt water, tropical fish in the Drum family  can be found fresh at Cosco or ask for it at your fish market. Great for those who like a mild, meaty fish, just as good cold the next day in a  salad or on a sandwich with lettuce,tomato,a little onion,French dressing in a Ciabatta bread.

So here’s a 6 minute recipe very easy to do, feeds two. Very good with Chardonnay or a chilled White Bordeaux.

What you need:

approx.  2lb fillet of Corvina…boneless

Sesame OIl…………………  5 Tbl.spoons
Olive Oil   ..……………………3 tbl.spoons

Chinese Rice Vinegar ………………1/4 cup
1 Lemon……………………..squeezed in mix
Clove or 2 of garlic……….chopped fine
Ginger (fresh)……………..chopped fine
Scallion…………………….sliced small
Worcestershire Sauce…….a few splashes

Do not substitute fresh ingredients for jarred garlic or ginger,fake lemon juice or any other vinegar …..

Your sauce should look like this one….you can adjust the proportions of the mix to taste, if you like more ginger or lemon etc….

A double sided grill, like a George Foreman or Cuisinart style works best.

First brush the fish with a light coat of sesame oil. Heat the grill to medium 350 degrees…place fillet 45 degree angle counter clock wise on the grill for 3 minutes…

turn Corvina fillet clockwise for another  3 minutes…

take out after 6 minutes total and spoon sauce over top… serve with any green veges you like or a salad…Pour wine in glass( if you haven’t already done that) eat,drink and be merry…Shown here are Brussel Sprouts with Balsamic Glaze.
