Sturgeon and intense flavours

Thanks to its neutral flavour, sturgeon is great at receiving any intense ingredients we can add. Valentina MacAuliffe has a recipe with mango, curry,  coconut milk, and many other guests with intense tropical flavours.


  1. In a pot, stir-fry the onion and bell pepper with olive oil. Once the onion is browned and transparent, add the turmeric, curry, cinnamon, and salt to taste. Stir for 1-2 minutes until an intense spicy odour emerges.
  2. Add coconut milk, mango and tomato concentrate, and bring to a boil. With a hand blender, pulverise the sauce to smooth out onion and mango and thicken sauce.
  3. Add sturgeon cubes to dish and cook for 8 minutes.
  4. Serve hot with pomegranate and capers to taste.
