We can safely say that sturgeons are living fossils, as this type of fish has been swimming in our seas and rivers for many millions of years. Gourmets all over the world like sturgeons because of their varied flavors.
This is what the best smoked sturgeon tastes like!
Sturgeons are cartilaginous fish, which means that they are almost boneless. Since sturgeons are commonly grown in aquaculture, they are available to purchase all year round but are best served as a delicacy for a special occasion. White meat with a very low fat content has an unique taste and is, therefore, appreciated in many countries. The fish is rather lean and dries up quickly. There are different ways to preserve it so that it can be stored longer, and all the valuable elements such as proteins, fatty acids and vitamins can be retained. Sturgeon is a great choice for lots of dishes.
A variety of summer salads with lime juice, horseradish or olive oil dressings work especially well as a side dish. Smoked sturgeon also perfectly matches potatoes, spinach, various vegetables, as well as good white wine.
Where does the sturgeon come from?
You may be surprised to learn that the sturgeon has lived in many waters in the northern hemisphere for about 250 million years. Thus, it is much older than dinosaurs! The age of most specimens reaches 100 years, and the length, depending on the species, is up to 10 feet (3 m). In Europe, most sturgeons are found along the Atlantic coast, in the Mediterranean, Black and Caspian seas, the Adriatic coast and in the rivers of Northern Italy. They are also found in North America and parts of Asia.
Due to overfishing in these areas, most of the sturgeon are now bred in special aquaculture to ensure their survival. The aquaculture should reflect high standards as sturgeons must be kept in water of good quality. Being saltwater and freshwater fish, they need perfect environmental conditions for healthy functioning, which is why their meat is highly prized by gourmets.
