A traditional Jewish recipe. Baked Guefilte Fish is a must of every Jewish holiday, its tender light taste will make it your favorite dish.

Gefilte fish (/ ɡəfɪltə fɪʃ /; from Yiddish: געפֿילטע פֿיש, “stuffed fish”, cognate with German gefüllte Fische) is an Ashkenazi Jewish dish made from a poached mixture of ground deboned fish, such as carp, whitefish, or pike, which is typically eaten as an appetizer.
Although the dish historically consisted of a minced-fish forcemeat stuffed inside the fish skin, as its name implies, since the 19th century the skin has commonly been omitted and the seasoned fish is formed into patties similar to quenelles or fish balls. They are popular on Shabbat and holidays such as Passover, although they may be consumed throughout the year.
