Recipe: Sturgeon Fish Tacos with Avocado Salsa Verde

Ingredients
1 lb fresh sturgeon filet
1 container French’s fried onions
1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
1 tbsp each: Salt, pepper, garlic powder
Any desired toppings (like shredded cabbage, red onion, or sliced avocado)
Small flour or corn tortillas

Salsa ingredients
1/2 large avocado
1 bunch cilantro
Juice 2 limes
2 cloves garlic
2 large green tomatoes (or red, if that’s all you can find)
1 jalapeño, seeds removed according to desired level of heat

Directions
Bring out your food processor. Begin by combining fried onion, breadcrumb, and spices in processor.

Process until smooth (but not superfine).

Pour mixture out into shallow dish and coat sturgeon on both sides. Place coated fish on a lined baking sheet and cook under broiler for 3-4 minutes on each side.

Meanwhile, add all ingredients for salsa in food processor, and blend. Taste and add spices or extra lime as necessary. The salsa will have a slightly thicker consistency due to the avocado.

When fish is ready, carefully cut into cubes and serve in tortillas with the fresh salsa and any desired toppings.
