Moroccan-style gefilte fish Thanks for this recipe – it looks wonderful! A couple of things: the video featured uses a “squash” that’s not listed in the written form of the recipe (is that zucchini?). Additionally, some of the measurements (specifically the water and wine) differ as well. But my main question is: can you use this recipe with other kinds of fish, specifically Nile Perch (yes, I live in Israel) fillets? Thanks!

scrumptious new twist on gefilte fish I admit that this is a patchke but oh is it worth it! delicious savory and healthy low sugar option to gf! usually cant get fresh cilantro with a good hechsher so I’ve had to skip it but it’s delicious even without it. We even make extra sauce to use as an extra dip. Thank you Yussi!
