Royal. Cook 2 hours, then totally drain. Don’t forget to add the Shabbos Spice:)February 13, 2011 5:34 pm at 5:34 pm #1133848deiyezoogerMember

I found Fruend’s to be the best. Don’t know why I love it but I do.February 13, 2011 7:48 pm at 7:48 pm #1133851popa_bar_abbaParticipant
I found Frued’s to be the best.”
What does Frued have to do with gefilte fish? Why does everything have to come back to psychologists?February 13, 2011 8:53 pm at 8:53 pm #1133852doodle jumpParticipant
I like Royal. My kids love A&B. I bake mine in the oven.February 13, 2011 9:14 pm at 9:14 pm #1133853ontheballMember
Freunds Simcha Roll- definitely the best by far!! I cook it.I have company every Shabbos, & all the “repeats” look forward to my fish, saying it’s the best they ever tasted.February 13, 2011 10:16 pm at 10:16 pm #1133854
I think Royal is a cheaper brand of A&B.
Some side info- the cheaper the gefilte fish is, the less fish there’s in it.
The more expensive brands charge more because there’s more REAL FISH in there.February 13, 2011 11:58 pm at 11:58 pm #1133855moishyParticipant
A & B is THE best!!February 14, 2011 3:16 am at 3:16 am #1133856yogiboobooMember
Dov’s or Fresh and Frozen or RoyalFebruary 14, 2011 3:33 am at 3:33 am #1133857koillel101Member
Royal- have tasted many others but they pale in comparison in taste and texture.February 14, 2011 4:07 am at 4:07 am #1133858
Most gefilte fishes are like a piece of raw dough. Think about next time you eat it.
I hear there’s aa new one out there- Feldman’s, and it’s pretty good. If someone tries it please let us know!February 14, 2011 2:17 pm at 2:17 pm #1133859Feif UnParticipant
My wife and I tried many different brands when we first got married, and decided that the A&B Hungarian Style fish was the best. We boil it with carrots, some onion, sugar, and a bit of black pepper.February 14, 2011 3:32 pm at 3:32 pm #1133860OfcourseMember
I hear many people not wanting any starch that goes into the regular store bought rolls, have their fish store make them a roll of pure fish, onions etc, and no starch. The rolls are at least $10 a piece though.
Anyone here knows a store in BP that they know offers a tasty one without special order? The ones that dont do it regularly, you have to custom order 10 rolls at a time.February 14, 2011 3:45 pm at 3:45 pm #1133861HealthParticipant
Freunds and A & B; the most expensive, but the best. Ungars and Meal Mart are ok. Don’t remember about Royal. The rest some people like them otherwise they wouldn’t still be on the market.
BenZ’s used to be a good fish, but I don’t see it anymore.February 14, 2011 4:18 pm at 4:18 pm #1133862cherrybimParticipant
Feif Un – How do you manage to have A&B fish’s paper wrap not get stuck to the loaf during cooking; we have had no luck? While the fish may be tasty, because some of the fish sticks to the wrap, the result is disfigured fish. We switched to Ungers, good fish and no stuck paper problem.February 14, 2011 4:55 pm at 4:55 pm #1133863Feif UnParticipant
cherrybim: I don’t know, we just don’t have a problem with it. Maybe you’re overcooking it, or not putting in enough water? We usually cover the fish about 3/4 of the way up with water, cook for 45 minutes, flip it over, and cook for another 45 minutes. Make sure the flame is low so the water doesn’t boil out.February 14, 2011 5:27 pm at 5:27 pm #1133864basmelechParticipant
I’ve used A&B, but, they add matzoh meal. I’ve used Freund’s which doesn’t add matzoh meal, but, it’s too sweet. They are both very good, but, when I have time I make my own gefilte fish and it’s the best (also expensive, I don’t add any fillers)February 14, 2011 5:29 pm at 5:29 pm #1133865
Ofcourse- I think webers fish store has it. I use their gefilte fish and its delicious. Much fishier than other brands, but I’m not sure if it’s totally starch free. I do think they make such rolls though.February 14, 2011 6:31 pm at 6:31 pm #1133866always hereParticipant
I buy whatever’s on sale (really like Royal); but the best fish I ever had was called ‘Shabbos Fish’, & I believe we got it from Crown Hts. @ Pesach time.February 14, 2011 7:46 pm at 7:46 pm #1133867guy-ochoMember

Our family uses Ungers Gefilte fish rolls.
Just got the recipe from our home.
It is sometimes cooked on a stovetop with carrots, onions,
some sugar & black pepper.. or sometimes cooked in the oven with a homemade lightly precooked sauce: tomato sauce, ketchup, sugar ,
fried onions, sliced carrots, sugar, black pepper and small chunks of celery. Pour on top of the gefilte fish and bake
covered for 90 minutes in a preheated oven at 365 degrees.October 23, 2015 4:17 am at 4:17 am #1133873👑RebYidd23Participant
Do you use the same brand every time?October 23, 2015 4:28 am at 4:28 am #1133874☕ DaasYochid ☕ParticipantJanuary 28, 2016 3:02 pm at 3:02 pm #1133875HashemisreadingParticipant

Schindler’s, which gluten free, or Ungar’s.January 28, 2016 4:48 pm at 4:48 pm #1133877Torah613TorahParticipant
Kollel store brand, something like 3.89 a loaf.
Put a bit of tomato sauce on bottom of pan, drench with tomato sauce, bake until burnt.
