Gefilte Fish


Years ago I tried making my own and, what can I say, it was not very good. Perhaps it was because I was a novice cook and should just try again. But after I discovered the frozen loaves there didn’t seem to be much point. This is the basic version; the kitchen smells great while these cook.

2 frozen gefilte fish loaves,
1 onion, sliced,
2 whole carrots
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon paprika

Remove label from frozen loaves but leave in paper wrapper. Place in a pot and cover with water. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for about 1 hour. Cool, remove from plastic wrap and store in liquid in refrigerator. Slice before serving.
