Tip: Don’t make this late Friday afternoon – unless you have more then 4 hours to cool, otherwise it won’t be ready for Shabbos.


  • 1 loaf of frozen gefilte fish
  • 2 carrots or a handful of baby carrots
  • 1 onion
  • Salt and Pepper


  1. Boil a lot of water in a pot with the onion, carrots, and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  2. Once the water is boiling add the fish with wax paper wrapper on it
  3. Leave on a medium flame for an hour and fifteen minute – 1 ½ hours
  4. After allotted time (as specified on fish package) wait for water to cool a bit and then “fish” out the fish, carrots and onions
  5. Put in a container or tin with tin foil – make sure its covered so it doesn’t dry out.
  6. Refrigerate until cool and enjoy.

Until next time,
