    tn slagamater,
    Dang....that is a little guy. Doesn't sound like you'll end up with much if you filet it. I am thinkin I might score the skin just into the flesh, season, and cook direct over medium heat until it wants to start flaking, then pick the meat of the bones and chow. That is a one serving size fish there!

  • Where I am from in Missouri we used to clean the drum and grill them in foil with onions and potatos. We would then unwrap and throw away the drum and eat the onions and potatos only. Catfish and crappie are king here, with some bass thrown in. Just kiddin a little, hope you arent offended.

    tn slagamater,
    Must be different kind of drum then they are catching in the Chesapeake. Black drum running to 92 pounds. Red drum maybe? On outer banks of NC I think they always work some bacon fat into the cook. They thought of that before Emeril!

  • Nature Boy,
    saute' a little onion and bell pepper in olive oil, add fresh chopped tomatoes and a little tomato sauce ( 1 cup )
    cook for about an hour or so on low heat. At this point you can add 1/4 cup of brown roux if you have some. Cook another 30 minutes if so. Add seasoned fish filets, chopped garlic, bay leaves, fresh parsley, cover and cook 20 minutes. Uncover, sprinkle fresh cut green onions and serve over RICE. You could also add 1 cup white wine at the beginning if you LIKE !!!
    Myself, I don't cook with wine much, I find it mask the food way to often.

    Cher Wil, this sounds a lot like one of my favorite fish dishes "HUACHINANGO VERACRUZANA" and it was posted here by one of my favorite pop artist, Cher. Thanks Cher. [p]

    CentralPork, Here in Kansas, wife and I love to find a fisherman who has caught a bunch of drum and is about to throw it away. Takes about 5 of them, fillet only, to make great eating for the 2 of us. Only use the fillet, never the rest of the fish. Tastes a lot like crappie to us.
