These Sturgeon Fillets are farm raised and brought in from Florida. It is a lean fish that is firm and meaty and has a similar texture to veal or chicken. Farm raised sturgeon has a mild, delicate flavor and is pale pink when raw but cooks up white. Sturgeon is a good substitute for tuna, swordfish or shark. Overcooking it will toughen the meat so cook for 2-3 minutes per side for best results. It can be grilled, sautéed, broiled, poached or smoked.
