One of the top sellers throughout the Lone Star State yet many have never even heard of Black Drum. While not as flashy as Halibut, Chilean Seabass, or ever Redfish, Black Drum is one of our own personal favorites in terms of flavor profile and methods of preparation among the seafood world. They are well suited for blackening, baking, and grilling, but in my opinion there is nothing quite as good as a battered and fried black drum fillet.
