When I growing up, Manischewitz gefilte fish was always a part of our holiday meals. It brings back memories of the whole family sitting around my grandmother’s table. I decided to give a modern twist to this classic.
In a large frying pan heat one tablespoon oil over medium high heat.
Add the leeks and 1/4 teaspoon salt and cook until soft and brown.
In a bowl, mash the gefilte fish.
Add the eggs, breadcrumbs, paprika, garlic powder, pepper, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and leeks. Place oil in the frying pan, heat over medium heat.
Form patties of the fish mixture and fry in the frying pan for about three minutes on each side.
To make the beet aioli, mix together the beet, mayo, lemon juice, garlic, and Dijon mustard. Serve the fish patties with the aioli.
