what type of fish do you use? A lot of the recipes for homemade gefilte fish in Spice and Spirit cookbook call for carp, whitefish, and pike. I was at the fish store today, discussing it with the guy there. This is what he had to say:

1) Whitefish is great for gefilte fish

2)Pike is not so great because it's pricier and there is a lot of "waste." Meaning, if you need 1.5 lbs of pike for your recipe, you will have to buy (and pay for) a much bigger fish just to get 1.5 lbs of ground pike

3)Carp is good, but it only comes to my city one day a week

He also recommended trout and a fish called buffalo, which I had never heard of before. What do you use?

the fish market I go to does not sell white fish, so I get carp, and equal amount or more of sheephead, buffalo, and sometimes red snapper. The only time I make gefilte fish is on pesach, my family really likes it.

Willow, can you post your recipe?
Maybe one day when I have some time, I'll try it.

White fish is the best fish - I find other fish a little too fishy - I used to make gefilte fish 2x a year - now I guess I don't. Maybe I'll make some.
