  • In a large pot over medium heat bring fish stock, onion, carrot, celery, parsley, and thyme to a boil. Reduce heat and keep at a simmer.
  • Make gefilte fish: In a medium skillet over medium-low heat, heat olive oil. Add onion, carrot, and celery and saute until very soft, about 10 Minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
  • Pulse onion mixture with parsley leaves in a food processor until almost smooth then place in a large bowl.
  • Dry the fish out, if it was frozen, squeeze liquids out. Cut fish into large chunks and place in a food processor. Pulse until finely ground but not pureed (you want some texture).
  • Add fish, eggs, and matzo meal to onion mixture and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Place in the refrigerator to chill for 30-60 minutes.
  • Form into 20 fist-sized ovals and place gently fish into simmering stock in a wide pan, spaced out (it will slightly expand while cooking). Let simmer until completely cooked through about 25 minutes. Cook in batches in a few ports in parallel, if necessary.
  • Serve on top of endive leaves with horseradish, matzo, and cooked carrots sliced from the stock.
