Doctored Gefilte Fish

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by mandabears

Gefilte fish is a strange creature. You either love it or HATE it. I love it, the rest of my family despises it. This is Peter Pan's mother's recipe, one of the rare things that she cooked well.

Hi Renee, this was truly delicious! I love gefilte fish & this knocked up a few bars! It makes it look so pretty and with the beet horseradish - it was a great hit. There was some leftover so we are having it again for lunch. Thanks for a great recipe, Diane :)
