    I made this and although it tasted very good, the fish was NOT pink rimmed. It was sort of a muddy, brownish color all the way through.
    A disappointment.

    • Trying to think what might have gone wrong for you. Did you keep the wrapper on? Doing so ensures that just the “rim” outside turns pink but the inside stays super white, just like the video. Depending on the size of your pan, if the fish is not completely immersed in the borscht then flip it about halfway through for an even color. I also use Gold’s a really pinkish red borshct. Please let me know.

  3. This looks so pretty. I have some homemade borscht in the freezer. Wonder if it would work.

    any ideas on how to get other colors?
    i can picture serving up a few thing slices with different colored rims would be very eye catching

    I can’t seem to find frozen gefilte fish.
    Can I buy a fresh one and then freeze it to make the pink rimmed gefilte fish?

    • oy so sorry but that won’t work — where do you live? I can maybe suggest a store or online delivery service for the frozen gefilte

    I often make gefilte fish mold (from scratch) that is absolutely wonderful and all my guests rave about it.. however, some times I’d like to vary it up. Do you think I could roll my raw mixture in parchment paper, freeze, then do this with it?

    • Hey Cherie – 1st – WHOA and WOW!!! and 2nd – YES OF COURSE!!! enJOY!
