Honey Baked Gefilte Fish

READY IN: 42mins
Recipe by Sarah Chana

Born of necessity (no time, lots of guests...help!!), this quickly became a family favorite. It is almost silky in texture, and holds up well. Dress it up with horseradish or horseradish and mayo, or an assortment of salads... the possibilities are endless. An excellent make-ahead for a busy holiday week

Top Review by Saralaya

Ohhhhhhh this was good! This was my first try at using a frozen fish log ... this was so easy and DELICIOUS... my DH and I loved it and I will definitely make it again. Thank you again! It helped make our otherwise difficult New Year much sweeter! ETA: I've been making this over and over again and I can't tell you how much we enjoy it. I'm not any good at making gefilte fish from scratch and don't usually have the time.... so we mostly did without, although both my husband and I love good gefilte fish. Now I make it frequently and will continue to do so!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Defrost gefilte fish loaf (partially defrosted is ok if you are pressed for time).
  2. Dump it unceremoniously in a 9" round pan (or equivalent).
  3. Add honey to taste (start with about 1/4 cup if you like your fish sweet; less if you don't), and sprinkle with white pepper (again, more if you like the thrill of the heat, less if you don't).
  4. Smoosh some more, and smooth out the top.
  5. Sprinkle with paprika for color.
  6. Bake at 325F (give or take) for about 40 minutes.
  7. Will be firm but not dry when it is done.
