Fresh autumn pike under a spicy marinade of vegetables! Very flavorful, bright and delicious dish, and if you cook the whole pike, as I did, then this dish is also sure to decorate the table for guests! It’s all about the rich taste of the marinade, in cold form it is an amazing appetizer from pike.
From the traditional Jewish dish gefilte fish, this pike fundamentally differs in two features. First, the fish is baked in the oven, and not boiled, as it should be in the Jewish tradition. Second – and most importantly, there is no matzo or breadcrumbs in the minced meat, but there is lard added to it. The above, however, does not make the dish less delicious.
Another option for a snack on a holiday table, especially if you are lucky and have fresh pike on Your table.
