Riofrío Sturgeon Confit

A Superior Flavor

Fresh stur¬≠geon chunks pre¬≠served in EVOO from organ¬≠i¬≠cal¬≠ly farmed Span¬≠ish olives. For its sus¬≠tain¬≠abil¬≠i¬≠ty and high qual¬≠i¬≠ty, it has received an Organ¬≠ic Agri¬≠cul¬≠tur¬≠al seal from the Euro¬≠pean Union. Comes in a 140g jar and 70g tin

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

The stur¬≠geon, as prized for its smooth-tex¬≠tured meat as it is for its caviar, is more fla¬≠vor¬≠ful than bel¬≠u¬≠ga. It is a lean white¬≠fish with firm and meaty flesh that is pink when raw and white when cooked, sim¬≠i¬≠lar in tex¬≠ture to chick¬≠en breast or veal. Riofr√≠o con¬≠serves it to main¬≠tain fresh¬≠ness, using only the high¬≠est qual¬≠i¬≠ty organ¬≠ic La Chi¬≠na¬≠ta EVOO from Extremadu¬≠ra, a land famed for its jam√≥n iberico. 

PREPA­RA­TION OR PAIRINGS

Riofr√≠o‚Äôs stur¬≠geon con¬≠fit is best as a light repast accom¬≠pa¬≠nied by fresh sal¬≠ad with bal¬≠sam¬≠ic dress¬≠ing or light¬≠ly saut√©ed veg¬≠eta¬≠bles. The meat chunks go well with a spoon¬≠ful of Kaviari Osci¬≠etra Pres¬≠tige Caviar, also from stur¬≠geon, to enhance the del¬≠i¬≠cate fla¬≠vors. Place a lit¬≠tle on bit on toast¬≠ed bread for a light but deca¬≠dent snack.

For this del¬≠i¬≠ca¬≠cy, we rec¬≠om¬≠mend a glass or three of Sancerre, Sauvi¬≠gnon Blanc, or the fuller-bod¬≠ied Pouil¬≠ly-Fum√© to com¬≠ple¬≠ment the smoky notes in the fish. Red wine lovers, fear not aban¬≠don¬≠ment. A Pinot Noir also pairs well with this whitefish.

A MAR­RIAGE OF TWO BRANDS

Riofr√≠o is one of the main stur¬≠geon breed¬≠ers in Europe and the first to acquire organ¬≠ic cer¬≠ti¬≠fi¬≠ca¬≠tion for its caviar. Based in Spain, where the waters remain at a con¬≠stant 14‚ÄČ‚Äď‚ÄČ15¬ļC, they are per¬≠fect¬≠ly locat¬≠ed to source pre¬≠mi¬≠um fish and fish prod¬≠ucts adher¬≠ing to Euro¬≠pean Union Organ¬≠ic Aqua¬≠cul¬≠ture stan¬≠dards. It‚Äôs only nat¬≠ur¬≠al that they part¬≠ner with Organ¬≠ic Agri¬≠cul¬≠ture EVOO brand La Chi¬≠na¬≠ta, pur¬≠vey¬≠or of some of the most sus¬≠tain¬≠ably farmed and envi¬≠ron¬≠men¬≠tal¬≠ly con¬≠scious olive oils in Spain.
