Kosher Goldfish

Ok, it’s really not a kosher goldfish, but it is definitely cool. Here I use a fish shape mold (which used to be my grandmothers) but any cake or cupcake mold will also work.

I like to make this dish for two reasons. One, it’s a great way to use up leftover soup. Two, the agar agar is made from seaweed and you get all those great seaweed health benefits even in the gelatin form. Plus, the kids and husband can’t complain that you are serving them seaweed because they don’t even know that they are eating it.


1 liter orange soup (any thick, colored soup will also work)
7 tbsp agar agar (seaweed gelatin)

Bring the soup to a boil. Add the agar agar. Simmer for 5 minutes. Pour into a mold, and chill for 2 hours. When the dish is firm to the touch, flip it upside down over a platter and gently remove it from the mold. Serve on a bed of lettuce.
