This month our Fun Fish is Fresh Rock Shrimp, sourced from Beacon Fisheries! Rock shrimp have a sweet, slightly briny flavor, tasting like a cross between a shrimp and lobster.

Be sure to keep an eye on them to prevent them from getting too tough! Inside you'll find recipes for Rock Shrimp Mac & Cheese and Rock Shrimp Tacos, which we hope will encourage you to showcase this product on your winter menu or specials board.

This fish is available as a whole fish 1.8#+ as code 972C on our Seattle Fish app. Hybrid Striped Bass is a cross between a male freshwater bass and a female striped bass. When the two are combined, a white meaty flesh with firm texture and delectable flavor is produced. Inside you'll find a recipe for Seared Striped Bass, Khao Soi, Squash, which we hope will encourage you to showcase this product on your winter menu or specials board.
