The Maryland Department of Agriculture’s Seafood Marketing Program
encourages you to celebrate Father’s Day weekend with fresh Maryland seafood. Blue Crabs and Rockfish are two delicious options for your holiday menu and both are currently in-season.
With its sweet, mild, and medium-firm and flaky texture, Maryland’s state fish, Rockfish can stand on its own as a main dish or be paired with Maryland True Blue crab meat.
Chef John Shields, of Gertrude’s Restaurant in Baltimore, brings these two Maryland icons together in his signature Rockfish Imperial.
Watch Chef Shields talk about his culinary vision behind this mouth-watering dish.
