Gefilte Fish with Edible Flowers

Although it is customary to eat dairy foods on the first day of Shavuot, we actually eat two meals—first a dairy meal, and then, after a short break, we eat the traditional holiday meat meal. For many of us, that includes fish as a first course and Gefilte fish is usually the fish of choice in traditional Jewish  homes.

Here is a simple and pretty way to serve the fish—garnish with edible flowers!  Decorating our homes with flowers is an important part of Shavuot so why not the Gefilte fish?

Clockwise from top left; chive, nasturtium, pansy and thyme. Buy them at an organic market to be sure they are not treated with pesticides.

So much prettier than plain old Gefilte fish!
