My mother’s best friend, my Tante Mira, was one of the best home cooks I knew. She hailed from Morocco and had the most unique, delicious food every Shabbat. This recipe is a variation on her Moroccan gefilte fish I remember from my childhood so fondly.


Main ingredients

  • 1 loaf frozen gefilte fish, sliced into 1/2-in thick slices and paper discarded

  • 1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced

  • 2 T vegetable oil

  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce

  • 1/4 cup water

  • Black pepper, to taste

  • Paprika, to taste


Prepare the Fish


Heat vegetable oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat, add onions and sauté until translucent and slightly browned (about 5-7 minutes) stirring frequently. Add soy sauce and water and stir to combine.


Place frozen gefilte fish slices over onions in a single layer, be careful not to overlap the pieces, and sprinkle each piece with black pepper and paprika. Cover and let cook for 6 minutes. Flip pieces over and sprinkle the other side with black pepper and paprika. Cover for an additional 5-6 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. Can serve warm, room temperature or cold!
