Scrumptious Baked Sturgeon
submitted by: Paulette Kenyon


Yes, sturgeon seems to be hot this year. Hooray! Sturgeon are wonderful game fish; so much fun to catch! Their meat is also exquisite! Now, just because the fishing is great, don't go overboard!

I hate when people abuse a fishery when it seems to be making a comeback, like the halibut in the Bay and salmon, a couple of years ago. It made me sick the way some people went nutso, fishing every moment, bringing home more than they could possibly eat! Let's show a little common sense, a little restraint. Let's leave something there for next year. Okay?

This really easy recipe for sturgeon is something that I dreamed up that ended up tasting much better than I imagined it would. Thus the name "Scrumptious" Baked Sturgeon. Go for it!

  • 1 lb. sturgeon steaks or filets
  • 1/3 C mayonnaise
  • 1/2 C cracker meal crumbs
  • 1 tsp. lemon pepper
  • 1 tsp. butter
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease a metal baking pan with the butter. Spread a generous amount of mayonnaise on both sides of the fish.

Roll fish in cracker meal flavored with the lemon pepper. Place fish in the baking pan. Lay a piece of foil loosely over the top of pan and place in the oven. Cook for 5-7 minutes, until cooked. Serves 4.
