    I catch my own fish, so this drum was fresh frozen, I thawed it out Sunday mid day.

    Something came up and could not cook it , so I decided to marinate it in citrus (store bought) sauce.

    Marinated over night, but again could not cook it Monday night , is it going to be ok if I cook it tonight.

    I have never waited this long to cook fish. but I hate to waste a big catch.

    If it is a citrus marinade it's probably cooked - it might even be over cooked.  Ceviche doesn't take long.

    Mike is spot on.
    By now your catch will be mushy.
    I have no problem brushing on a flavorful citrus based seasoning just before it hits the pan or grill but delicate proteins like fish do badly if allowed to sit in an acidic maranade.

    Well im a little late to the party, but heres my 2 cents...

    If it was just marinating in all that acid , its probably a ceviche by now, probably over-cooked.

    Check out its texture... 

    As mentioned by Mike: "Ceviche doesnt take long"

    Its will be mushy. 

    Maybe drain the acidic juices and gently pat fry with paper towels. 

    Toss some flour and fry. 

    If not make a tomatoe based stock and make a fish stew with it. 

    That or chuck it....

    Wow! That was a great idea. You can add up some spices as you marinated the fish with citrus. it would be more tasty and delicious to cook.
