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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large dutch oven, (I use my pasta pot) place gefilte fish, sprinkle with paprika.
  2. Cover with vegetables.
  3. Add reserved liquid.
  4. Cover and cook over low heat for 1 hour.
  5. Uncover and cook for 1/2 hour.
  6. Put in refrigerator with all the liquid (it should jelly) Serve cold with red beet horseradish.

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 :)
