Personal Notes:
I don't remember Baba ever making gefilte fish, but there frequently was what I called "shaky juice fish" and they called "marinad". The fish Baba and my mother made it with is not available here, but I tried to reconstruct the recipe with salmon. I think I came very close to the original and the salmon works very well.
