    Ilysse's Note:

    From a Jewish cookbook (your guess is as good as mine which one) this is a great alternative to gefilte fish. Nice as an appetizer or as a light main dish. I use salmon as it is readily available and is very good but the recipe suggested trout, and carp as well, so go with your favorite. The prep time does not account for chill time.
