Hailing from the world's largest cod stock, Skrei are larger than coastal cod and have a firm consistency with very white, flaky meat. Boasting a clean flavor, it is considered a culinary delicacy in many parts of the world.

More about Sturgeon....
A prehistoric survivor of the ice age, Sturgeon is the largest freshwater fish in the world, some exceeding 2,000 pounds!
Ancient Romans thought Sturgeon an aphrodisiac with life-extending properties. Henry I of England declared it the "Royal Fish." King Edward II was so devoted to Sturgeon he issued a decree that any Sturgeon caught must first be offered to the throne.
Looking like an aquatic dinosaur, the sturgeon may be one of the strangest looking fish swimming, but the lean, firm meat has a
delicious flavor. Those who love swordfish will enjoy the mild taste of sturgeon and find it an excellent alternative.
Our soup is Art's wonderful Fresh Cream of Mushroom.
