Corvina is known for its white, tender and flaky meat. It is a versatile fish, which can go in many different preparations. Commercial fishermen seek it avidly and corvina is over-fished in some areas. White corvina -- also called white seabass, corvina blanca, or king croaker -- is a member of the Sciaenidae family. Corvina steaks are thicker than fillets, and hold up well to a robust spice mixture. Blackening the corvina is a wonderful method for handling the fish, as the smokiness of the grill adds to the fish's delicate flavor.

Dip each piece of fish in the butter, then sprinkle it with the spice mixture.

Place the fish on the grill, and grill the fish steaks for 3 to 4 minutes, covered with a lid. Turn the fish with a spatula, then cook for 3 to 4 minutes on the other side.
