Every cook has his/her own personal favorites that are sure-fire hits every single time. I have been preparing this dish for many years and it never fails to please. The fabulous aroma of the ginger and garlic wafting from the kitchen put diners in the right mood even before the dish comes to the table. When served on a gleaming white tray, with the green of the lettuce, a sprinkling of scallions and sesame seeds, and the bright color of the sauce, you have an exciting dish. This is definitely not your garden variety lemon chicken.

"I do not pretend to be a professional chef. When I consider a new recipe, one of the most important things to me is whether the recipe’s directions are clear and easy to follow. I have written the recipes in this cookbook so that “even a rabbi could follow them.” I hope you will enjoy these dishes. I also hope, when you prepare them for your friends or family, that you will derive as much pleasure as I have by sharing them with you."
-Rabbi Michael Sternfield
One would not normally associate Cajun and Jewish cooking. At first glance, they would not appear to be that compatible, particularly since Cajun cooking often uses ingredients that are blatantly non-Kosher. There is the Kosher Cajun Cookbook, by Mildred L. Covert and Sylvia P. Gerson, which adapts Cajun classics to conform to the Jewish dietary laws. This recipe is much more innovative because it truly combines the texture and traditional Jewish chopped liver with seasonings that never could have been imagined by our Jewish mothers. It has a lot of zip, I promise.
I realize that for many traditionalists, fooling around with an old standard comes close to sacrilege. However, in my opinion, gefilte fish desperately needs help. In its usual form, it is at best, an acquired taste. This southwestern version receives fabulous reviews every time. Even people who dislike gefilte fish like this recipe. This is another example of how a somewhat boring Jewish recipe can be brightened up a lot with the fusion of ingredients from other communities.
