Mouthwatering Sturgeon Recipes

If you have never eaten sturgeon, then I don't know what else can be said... except that you are seriously missing out on some really excellent tasting food!

Besides that, eating sturgeon fish is actually really good and healthy for you.

Sturgeon doesn't give off that gamey fish smell and taste that some other species of fish have. And, you just might be a little surprised how delicious it tastes, too.

This first recipe is one of our favorite sturgeon recipes.

Simple Pan Seared Sturgeon

Pan Seared Sturgeon


  • Sturgeon steak fillets, cut into 1"- 3" strips
  • olive oil
  • butter
  • lemon
  • salt
  • pepper, freshly ground

Cooking The Pan Roasted Sturgeon:

Preheat frying pan over medium heat with a teaspoon of olive oil and/or a pat of butter. Add 2-3 sturgeon fillets, ensuring not to overcrowd the pan. Salt and pepper as desired. Sear each side until lightly golden brown, about two to three minutes per side. Remove fillets and serve with a lemon wedge. Tastes delicious as is, and you may opt to garnish with your favorite sides.

  • 1 lb sturgeon fillet cut into nuggets
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup corn meal
  • salt and pepper to taste

Sturgeon Nuggets Cooking Directions:

Pre-heat a pot, pan or deep fryer with peanut oil over medium-high heat.

In the meantime, mix the corn meal, flour and salt and pepper together in a bowl or plastic zip loc bag. Dredge the sturgeon nuggets in the mixture. Then deep fry the sturgeon nuggets in the peanut oil until they're a nice golden brown.

Serve with your favorite dipping sauce, but it's also good on it's own!
