Ossetrina pod Syrom – Sturgeon Baked with cheese recipe…

“Ossetrina pod Syrom” (Sturgeon Baked with cheese) recipe a Russian fish dish…

This is a fine New Year and or Christmas dish to serve the family. Since it is still not New Year and Russians Christmas is New Year, then make a fish dish for your family and watch them eat it up. I suggest using whatever fish you desire, but, sturgeon is really good and it holds together good. I make it with carp also…

Ingredients:
1 kilo sturgeon
8 ea only the egg yolk Cooked (Calls for this, but I use the whole egg and just six of them!)
2 c sour cream
2 tbsp butter
1 c dried and finely ground bread crumbs
2 c cheese ground
5 tb vegetable oil
1 ea lemon
2 ea carrot
2 ea parsley root
2 ea bay leaf
salt, pepper, garlic as needed

Lets make:
1. Boil the sturgeon in a large sauce pan with cut up carrots, parsley root, bay leaf, pepper, garlic and salt for 25 minutes…
2. Then slice the sturgeon into long slices, salt them and put in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours… (I actually do this for overnight!)
3. Then after the above is done: Mix and or whip the yolks only of hard boiled eggs, with the sour cream and butter… (Like I said, just whip the whole boiled eggs and enjoy…)
4. Put the fish slices on a oiled oven baking pan, spoon the sauce you just made on top of them, cover that with dried bread crumbs (croutons,) lemon juice, vegetable oil and cover the whole thing with shredded cheese… (Maybe a little more cheese? That is good…)
5. Put the pan in the preheated medium oven for 25 minutes and bake…
6. Decorate with lemon twists and greens like parsley if desired… (Why? I am not fancy…)

Traditionally sturgeon is served with fried potatoes…

Or rice is good also….or or or you know what I mean…
