We got our start in Annapolis, MD where most activities revolve around the Chesapeake Bay, and where eating seafood is a way of life. The Tessemae's crew celebrated Rockfish opening day in Eastport on Saturday, and we are excited to fill our grills with lots of our favorite white flaky fish in the coming months.
Rockfish (a.k.a. Striped Bass) can be one of the most lean and nutrient dense sources of protein that is available. When we can get it fresh and local, why opt for anything else? A 5-ounce portion of Rockfish provides you with up to 35 grams of protein. Protein is essential for maintaining muscle mass and a strong immune system. The fish is also full of heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D, and plenty of potassium.
Plus, it’s the perfect companion to one of our favorite Tessemae’s flavors: Lemon Chesapeake.
Get excited for Chef Kristen's newest recipe: Seared Rockfish Tacos. Cheers to Rockfish season!
