How to Cook Drum Fish


Drum fish are a mostly bottom-dwelling species of fish often found in shallow, tropical waters. These fish are popular as game as well as food. Often served as steaks, drum fish have a unique flavor. Like most fish meats, this flavor can be brought out by citrus flavors like lemon. Drum fish is baked at a medium heat to retain the moisture found in the meat.
