Drum are saltwater fish found in coastal waters. Drum fish have a mild taste with a meaty texture. The Drum meat is comparable to Red Snapper and cooks up white. During spawning season, Drum use special muscles rubbing against their air bladder to produce a “drumming” sound for which they are named.
Available fresh, skin-on fillets, and whole, and frozen, skinless fillets.
Thaw in the refrigerator overnight or submerge in cold water.
