Method:

Put sturgeon in very hot, but not boiling water for 5 minutes.

Clean fish skin off bone plates.

Peel and cut carrot into medium cuts.

Peel and cut onions into rings.

Bring to boil water with spices, salt, carrot, and onions.

Boil for about 5 minutes on medium heat.

Put sturgeon in a broth, bring to boil, ant turn heating to low.

Boil until ready (12-20 minutes).

Cool sturgeon in broth.

Then, take it out of the saucepan, dry, and cut into serving pieces.

Whip eggs with salt.

Grate dry bread (or use breadcrumbs).

Melt butter.

Dip every portion in whipped eggs, then roll in breadcrumbs, then dip in melted butter, then roll in breadcrumbs.

Put fish in an oven, pre-heated to 400º F, and bake for about 16-18 minutes.

Serve hot with any fresh vegetable salad, and with “Horseradish” sauce.

To make sauce, grate horseradish, and mix it with sugar.

Let it sit in a room (do not close with a lid!) for 40 minutes. Then, mix well with mayonnaise, and serve.

Note:

This way to cook fish was popular for noble dinners in Russia in 18-19 centuries.
