I want to take a moment to wish you all a Happy Passover, which starts this evening, and a Happy Easter (or, if you celebrate neither, Happy Weekend!) On Monday, I will post a full recap of both Seders. We will be at my parents’ house, along with a slew of friends and relatives. The food will be fantastic, as always. (Hey, it’s a safe bet.)
I know I have said it before, but it bears repeating: if you have only ever had gefilte fish from a jar, or you have avoided it because you have only seen it in a jar, know this: gefilte (which comes from the Yiddish word for “stuffed“) fish can be a life altering (in a good way) experience. My mom turned me on to a recipe from the New York Times several years ago. It comes from someone in Alaska, and is made with salmon and halibut. This is no jellied ball of fish. It is a bundt of perfection. Served with some spicy horseradish, it is a big win.
Oh, and there is no nasty jelly, or jelly-type substance anywhere in sight.
Whatever you are eating this weekend, enjoy. And have a Cadbury creme egg for me.
