Ingredients

  • 2 lb. sturgeon
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 small bunch of herbs

Method

Clean the fish thoroughly and skin it. Lay the fish in a large fireproof dish, sprinkle over the seasoning and herbs very finely minced, and moisten with the lemon juice and wine. Place the butter in small pieces over the whole of the fish, put into a moderate oven (350° F., Gas 4) for about 30–40 min., and baste frequently. Bake until brown, then serve with its own gravy.
