Where – Columbia River
How – Wild Caught
Wild sturgeon is an underrated fish that deserves more attention. The flesh cooks up firm, solid and meaty almost like veal or chicken with a mild but distinctive flavor depending on their diet in freshwater compared to something caught brackish.
For Your Menu
White Sturgeon is great smoked. It is also delicious when baked, poached, or steamed – just don’t overcook it as the meat can easily become dry.
For Your Waitstaff
If your customers have never tried Sturgeon, this is a great opportunity for seafood lovers to add to their life experiences. Its unique meaty texture and mild flavor make it enjoyable with any wine from the Washington or Oregon area!
For Your Retail Display
