If you don’t have any time to cook, gefilte fish from a jar is a very convenient instant dinner. Gefilte fish from Costco is the best tasting jarred gefilte fish options I’ve tried.
Gefilte fish in a jar is already cooked, so all you have to do is open a jar and put the gefilte fish patty on a plate. Unopened jar of prepared gefilte fish doesn’t have to be refrigerated, which is great that I doesn’t take up the refrigerator space. I always have a jar of Costco gefilte fish in my pantry in case I don’t have time or energy to cook. Once you open a jar of gefilte fish, store the remainder in the refrigerator and use within a week.
Costco gefilte fish is Rockeach Old Vienna brand. The size of the Costco jar is 4 lbs, and it has 16 pieces of gefilte fish.

Gefilte fish is always eaten cold, so don’t try to warm it up 🙂 Gefilte fish goes really well with spicy horseradish. I usually spread gefilte fish patties with the purple beet horseradish.
