  • Summary

    Inspired by several Passover customs, this composed first course consists of egg-shaped dumplings made with three kinds of fish and matzo meal, in a chilled, herb-infused fish stock, and a piquant pairing of vinegar-soaked beets and fresh horseradish. Sprigs of herbs -- some bitter -- are more than just a garnish.
