Stuffed salmon or stuffed gefilte help

Does anyone have a recipe or suggestion about how to do portion-sized stuffed salmon with gefilte fish or stuffed gefilte fish for my Purim Seudah (meal)? I'm trying to jazz things up while still presenting the basics that my family expects.

    1. Do salmon steaks rather than filets, and stuff the center of the steak with gefilte fish?

      1. Buy a large fillet of salmon and slice it horizontally into long thin strips. Smear a thin layer of the defrosted gefilte fish on the salmon and roll up into a pinweel. You can add water, mayo or egg if you need to thin out the gefilte fish). Bake at 350 covered for 10-15min until cooked through and then leave for 5 minutes under the broiler or in the oven to get a bit of a crust on the fish. You may need to do 2 per portion. If you can get the fishmonger to cut the salmon strips for you it would be even easier and probably more even sized.

        1. Kosher by Design has a nice looking 3 layer gefilte fish recipe that looks like cake. Basically she takes a loaf of salmon gefilte fish, regular gefilte fish and then regular gefilte fish mixed with something to make it green and makes a 3 layer gefilte cake.

          It's simple enough that mere mortals can make it. (Well anyone who finds normal gefilte fish insufficiently "jazzy" is probably already capable of more that I can handle...)

          Let me know if you'd like the recipe.

            Funny. I found the recipe you refer to a couple of days ago and thought about it. I like the idea. Then decided that my family wouldn't like their fish mixed with other "stuff." Got overwhelmed with Mishloach Manot and other Purim things and wound up poaching the salmon and cooking regular gefilte fish from scratch. Plan to plate them together in a fancy little bowl with an endive and my dill sauce. I will try to stuff the fish for Shavuot, though.

              My bad. You wrote Purim and I saw Pesach...I figured you had time.
