    Laurita's Note:

    A friend gave me a croaker he caught in the Chesapeake Bay on his vacation. Never had the pleasure of eating croaker before. I've learned it's a sweet tasting bottom-feeder fish (from up north!) Other than cleaning it, the recipe is soooo simple and awesome tasting! The fish flakes right away from the bone, doesn't have a strong fish taste, and tastes incredible! Makes me want to go fishing up north so I can get "a whole mess of 'em"!!

      4 stars for this tastey, easy recipe. The peanut/crumb mixture is fine on its own; however, I'd like more zing to it like some mustard. Don't know if that would burn in the oven. 500 degrees is pretty hot; and some of the crumbs around the fish charcoallized. Solutions, anyone? I found the crumb crust wouldn't stick well to the fish, despite the oil. The fish has tiny bones in it so elderly persons may not want to eat it unless someone can suggest a way to get the tiny bones out easily. I made this with fish skin on and it was fine.

      I use a Poaching allows you to still retain flavor and cook the healthy way without drying fish out. And a litter butter, Tender meat with a mild, sweet flavor. Croaker is found in nearshore and Chesapeake Bay waters during the spring, summer and fall, and are available further south and offshore during the winter months.
      UPDATE:: To make a Poacher On each sheet of foil, place 1/2 teaspoon butter. Drape 1/4 of the filets over the butter, add salt and pepper to taste and one quarter of the slice scallions. Add about 1/2 teaspoon of water to each packet, sprinkle 1/4 of the herbes de provence on top of each, then fold the foil up and over the filet until you have a loose close packet, making sure there's some room inside to steam. Seal all edges. Repeat for the other filets.
      Put the packets on a baking sheet. If you've folded them correctly they should not leak while they're in the oven. If you're in doubt, put them in a large oven dish instead. Put into oven for 20-25 minutes. at 375 deg.F.
      It's very difficult to overcook fish this way, so if you're leery of the fish being undercooked, leave it in slightly longer.
      Open each packet at the table -- you don't want to miss that aroma!
