'SPQR' executive chef Matthew Accarrino created a type of bacon that is made from white sturgeon instead of pork. In recent years, many restaurants have been working on making traditional dishes with healthier ingredients. This chef has found a way to make pork-less bacon that is not only healthy, but also tasty.

SPQR is located in San Francisco and has earned one Michelin star. The restaurant is known for a standout dish that involves bacon strips made from white sturgeon. The fish-based bacon is not designed to mimic the taste or texture of pork. Instead, the pork-free bacon has a smoky flavor and a chewy consistency. The unique flavor is achieved by curing the fish in molasses, brown sugar and salt before adding hot smoke.

The fish-based bacon offers a gourmet alternative for those who do not consumer pork or other kinds of red meat.
