Halibut and Salmon Gefilte Fish

This recipe adapted from Martha Stewart is a fantastic new take on an old recipe. It is so light and flavorful and healthy you will want to save this recipe.


  • Ready Time : 0 min




  • 2 tablespoons Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 12 ounces boneless, skinless halibut fillets, cut up
  • 12 boneless, skinless salmon fillets, cut up
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup cold water, plus boiling water for pan
  • 3 tablespoons matzo meal
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 large carrot, peeled and grated
  • 1/2 large parsnip, peeled and grated
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • aioli


Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Spray a 5-by-9-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.  Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.   To the pan add the onion and cook until soft, 6 to 8 minutes.

In a food processor, pulse the halibut and salmon until chopped, don’t let it get too smooth.

Beat eggs with a mixer on medium speed until frothy, about 2 minutes. Beat in onion, fish mixture, cold water, matzo meal, sugar, lemon juice, 2 teaspoons salt, and some pepper until well combined.  Add the carrots, parsnips, and dill, mix until combined.

Transfer mixture to prepared pan. Cover with parchment-lined foil, and transfer to a large roasting pan. Pour enough boiling water into roasting pan to come halfway up the sides of the loaf pan. Bake until the center is firm, about 45 minutes. Remove pan from water. Let cool for 10 minutes.

Can be made up to three days in advance.  Slice and serve with aiol and/or horseradish.
