baked sturgeon & mixed vegetables

Besides the wonderful Door to Door Organics service, I've been really happy that a new fresh seafood market has opened only 1/2 a block away from me in downtown Denver. I think walking over there and picking up a fresh slice of fish is becoming a habit! Last night Well's had some fresh and hard to find sturgeon. Sturgeon is a wonderful white fish, mild and almost the texture and taste of black cod.

Baked Sturgeon & Mixed Vegetables

Pre-heat oven to 425.

0.75 pounds sturgeon filet
miso dressing
black pepper
1 tblsp. olive oil

2 garlic pods minced
1/2 onion diced into medium pieces
1 hot house tomato finely chopped
1/2 a head of cabbage torn by hand into pieces
1 zucchini thinly sliced
1 russet potato cubed

1/3 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. coriander powder
1/4 tsp. cumin
sweet paprika to liking
1 tsp. ghee

1. Boil a potato cut into quarters in a pot of water and salt to speed cooking time.

1. Coat the bottom of a baking dish with olive oil and put sturgeon skin side down.
2. Coat the top and sides of the filet with miso dressing. Then crust with coriander and pepper. And a dusting of cayenne.
3. Place in pre-heated oven for 10 minutes, or until cooked.

1. Put ghee in a medium skillet over medium/high heat.
