I had three grandmothers. My mother's mother, my father's mother and my mother's step-mother. After my mother's mother died my grandfather married a woman who was a caterer, her name was Esther. Esther was a phenomenal cook! She made everything taste amazing, even Gefilte Fish! Esther is the reason that I love Gefilte Fish. I know that a lot of people have nightmares about it but I have nothing but fond memories. And what I miss most about Esther is her Gefilte Fish!
I left home long before Esther was able to teach me to cook my favorite dishes. I have looked at dozens of Gefilte Fish recipes and there is a LOT of work involved. Much more work than I am interested in putting in for just one dish. All of my family's Passover Seders have been missing the initial fish course. I confess that I have missed it. This year we are doing something a little different. We are having deviled fish cakes. Not only are they Kosher for Passover, but they are gluten free to boot!
It all starts with the Matzo Meal! Manischewitz is now carrying a number of gluten free Passover Products, and matzo meal is one of them!
2 LBS Cod Filets, Chopped
1/2 C Matzo Meal
1 TSP Kosher Salt
1/2 TSP Black Pepper
1/2 TSP Garlic Powder
1/2 TSP Onion Powder
1 Lemon, Zested
1 Egg, Beaten
1/4 C Onion, Chopped
1 Roasted Red Pepper, Chopped
1/4 C Capers, Rinsed
1/4 C Olive Oil, For Frying
In large bowl, combine fish, gluten free matzo meal and seasonings.
Add Veggies and beaten egg.
Mix until combined.
Pre-heat large frying pan with olive oil over medium heat.
Form patties. Patties will be loose so carefully place in hot oil.*
Cook on each side for about 10 minutes.
*You don't want to have the temperature too high or the fish cakes will burn on the outside before becoming fully cooked on the inside. If you feel your fish cakes are not finished cooking then finish in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
