West Coast (Sockeye & Snapper) Gefilte Fish Cakes

West Coast (Sockeye & Snapper) Gefilte Fish Cakes

With Passover quickly approaching, it got us thinking about gefilte fish. 7 Seas Fish Market has been mincing fish for holidays such as Passover for the past 25+ years. This year, our friends Susy and Eran at Nava Creative Kosher Cuisine kindly shared a Gefilte Fish Ring recipe, which we adapted to make our very own version for the store! Enjoy!
