Passover Fish Recipes Your Family Will Love

Salmon Gefilte Fish West Coast Style


Fish is perfect for Passover and year round.

In my house, fish is a touchy subject because my husband and I don’t see eye to eye. I like it—hubby, not so much. Still, fish is a generally low fat, high-protein, heart-healthy food source. Experts recommend about two servings of fish per week. And, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association, any mercury risks associated with fish are outweighed by the benefits of eating fish regularly. So to help you get your fill of fish this Passover, here are 10 recipes to try:


Classic Gefilte Fish

Cod in a Light Lime Sauce (omit brown rice)

Cold Smoked Fis Salad (substitute matzah for flatbreads or rye)

Crispy Rainbow Trout

Horseradish-Crusted Salmon Fillets

Parmesan and Sun-Dried Tomato Crusted Tilapia (dairy)

Poached Halibut in Olive Oil

Salmon Gefilte Fish

Smoked Salmon Rolls (dairy; omit capers and substitute matzah for flatbreads)

Sweet and Sour Salmon (omit the crushed red pepper flakes if unavailable)
