The Instacart guide to croaker
The croaker, or Atlantic croaker, is the smallest member of the drum family of fish. Each croaker typically weighs between 0.75 and 1.5 pounds when sold, although some can grow to between three and five pounds in the wild. Croakers are typically 18 to 22 inches in length and have a silvery appearance with a pinkish tinge.
Raw croaker meat is usually white but may have a reddish tint. After the fish is cooked, the flesh is firm, lean, and white. Croaker skin is also edible. Cooked croaker has a slightly sweet taste and a medium briny flavor.
A croaker fillet contains approximately 15 grams of protein, making it a good choice to ensure a protein-rich diet. Croaker is also a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, which the body requires but can't produce itself. Other important minerals found in croaker include potassium, iron, and calcium, which can help maintain healthy blood pressure and bone structure.
Croaker is typically sold fresh. The fish will either have the head attached or be filleted into steaks. Croaker may also be sold in portions with a prepared coating of oatmeal or breadcrumbs.
