This recipe comes from a cookbook published by a local B'nai B'rith Women chapter in 1963. I haven't yet tried this recipe, but I plan to this Passover! If you try it first, please let me know what you think.

As I am gluten free, I used potato flour instead of matzo meal. That might have been the problem. The flavour was good, and did remind me of gefillte fish. But as I put it into the broth to boil, they started falling apart. I fished them out and laid them in a casserol, with the celery and carrots on top, then baked. we had it sliced and it was tasty. I don't believe I'll try again.
