2 fillets
3 limes
3 Tblspoons extra virgin olive oil

cracked pepper to taste

Slather in extra virgin olive oil and season liberally with Kosher salt, and cracked pepper from a peppermill.

Put on a grill at med heat and sear for 3 mins and turn, after turning squeeze the juice from half a lime onto fillets.

continue this method of turning and the lime juice until desired doneness is reached. 10 to 15 minutes depending on thickness of fillet.

serve with grilled aspearagus and grilled tomatoes.

Slice toms in half and cover in olive oil, salt pepper and parmesean cheese. grill open face up 3 to 5 mins and serve.

Sturgeon With Wild Mushrooms
The following recipe highlights the sturgeons meaty texture with the bold flavors of wild mushrooms, shallots, fresh thyme and a simple balsamic vinegar reduction.

The Grilled Sturgeon

4 sturgeon filets (6 to 7 ounces)
1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon course ground black pepper
pinch of kosher salt or sea salt

The mushroom & thyme saute

1/2 cup button mushrooms (sliced)
1/2 cup ####### mushrooms (sliced)
1/2 cup oyster mushrooms (sliced)
1/4 cup of shallots (sliced)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
1/4 cup chicken or vegetable stock (canned)
2 tablespoons dry white wine
pinch of salt and ground black pepper

Clean the grill well before getting it hot, this will help insure the fish will not stick while cooking. Start with a grill brush and remove any burnt on material. After words with an old towel that has been slightly oiled with plain vegetable oil rub the grill down. This is what chef's call "seasoning the grill".

Next head the grill on high while you prepare the sturgeon. Remove the skin from the sturgeon and place in a large stainless steel bowl. Add the olive oil, garlic, course black pepper and salt. Mix the seasonings into the fish to coat.

Prepare the mushroom saute by heating a large saute pan on high. Add the olive oil and add the sliced mushrooms and shallots just as the oil begins to smoke. Saute the mushrooms and shallots for about 1 minute and add the whole butter followed by the fresh thyme and salt and pepper.

Place the sturgeon on the grill and reduce the heat to a medium setting. Close the grill and leave the fish as is for 2 minutes. While the fish is cooking add both the stock and white wine to the mushroom mixture and continue to cook to reduce the liquid. Flip the fish after two minutes of cooking and cook another minute *or until the fish reaches an internal cooking temperature of 145 degrees.

Remove the grilled fish and plate, top with the mushroom and shallot mixture and enjoy. This recipe is excellent with roasted potatoes, yams or a rice blend.

Serves 4

Sturgeon roasted on a bed of salt.

5 cups corse sea salt
6 pieces of sturgeon 6 to 8 oz each
1 tblspn olive oil
1 cup lightly packed thyme sprigs - fresh
1 cup lightly packed oregeno sprigs - fresh
20 fresh bay leaves
1 lemon thinly sliced
herb oil ( recipe attached)

Spread sea salt in a 9 x 13 baking dish. Heat in a oven at 450 degrees or about 20 minutes.

Salt and pepper one side of the sturgeon. Pour olive oil in a non stick skillet over high heat. Sear each side of the sturgeon untill lightly browned on each side.

Remove hot baking dish from oven and add thyme oregeno sprigs, bay leaves and all but three lemon slices lightly through out the pan. Place sturgeon evenly around the pan. Take the last three lemon slices and cut them in half placing a piece on each piece of sturgeon.

Bake in oven for 12 to 15 minutes or untill fish is opaque and moist through out.

Drizzel herb oil over cooked sturgeon

### Herb Oil

In a blender combine 1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil 2 tblspn each of thyme leaves, oregeno leaves and chopped parsley. Blend until smooth and run through a strainer pressing to extract as much oil as possible.

I would suggest a nice Chardonnay such as a Kendall Jackson Grand Reserve or a cold can of Pabst Blue Ribbon :grin:

Bon Apetite!!

broil the sturgeon with some butter and pepper. Take out and cover with a standard picatta sauce.
(lemon juice, white wine, capers, and a little cornstarch to thicken.) It's easy and tastes great.
Of all the ways I cook the fish, folks seem to like this the best and it's so easy.
Enjoy the fish!

Coat 1 inch steaks with Paul Prudhommes "seafood magic" get a cast iron pan really hot and add a generous slab of butter...leave it in the pan until it turns brown and just as it begins to smoke, cover the bottom of the pan with the coated fish...open the front door and turn a fan on...let it cook on high heat each side for about three minutes after the pan is hot again...a deep reddish brown is what your after.

mix chopped cilantro with sour cream, lime juice and a bit of green chile tobasco...spoon the mixture over the fish and enjoy with a chardonnay (Trader Joes has a few really good non-alcohol chardonnays)
