- The night before the meal, put the sturgeon in an oven tray and pour a bottle of dry white wine over it. Cover with foil and leave in a cool place.
- Pre-heat the oven to 180C.
- Stuff the stomach cavity with the lemon, thyme and butter.
- Cook for 20 minutes then remove foil and cook for a further 20 minutes.
How do you prepare sturgeon to eat?
Like pork, sturgeon is best prepared slow-cooked, as it tenses up when put on direct heat. Therefore, it is not recommended to pan fry or grill a (thick) fillet or steak without first baking it for 20-30 minutes, covered, at 350°F.
How do you know when sturgeon is cooked?
Bake at 375 degrees for 22- 26 minutes – DO NOT OVERCOOK. How cold the fish is when it goes into the oven helps determine how long to cook it. I use a quick register thermometer to check for doneness. If it registers 130 degrees it’s done enough.
