Hot Fish Bites

Tasty and kid friendly—and a nice change for the adults too!

Yield: 10–12 servings


3 tablespoons oil

2 jalapeño peppers, diced

1 onion, chopped

1 loaf gefilte fish, defrosted

1 15-oz. can tomato sauce

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 tablespoon vinegar

1 teaspoon parsley


In a large skillet, heat oil. Add pepper and onion and lower the flame. Sauté for 10 minutes.

Using a spoon, scoop balls of fish into the pan and fry over medium heat for 5 minutes on each side.

Add remaining ingredients, stir carefully, and bring to a boil. Allow to simmer for 10 minutes and then turn off the flame.

Allow to cool.

Serve at any temperature.

Tip: You can fry the fish in any shape—a semi-defrosted loaf should be firm enough to be cut into cubes, etc.
