off heads and tails and reserve. Separate fish meat from bones and skin,
reserving both separately. Line bottom of pan with sliced onions and
carrot. Then place bones and skin.

Cover with cold water. Add 1/2 tsp pepper and 1 TB salt. Bring to a boil.

Meanwhile, combine fish with grated carrot and onion. Put through grinder
twice. If desired, put plain grated carrot through grinder at end to clean
grinder. Add 1/2 tsp pepper and 1 1/2 TB salt. Beat eggs well and mix with
ground fish, add matzo meal.

If using heads, fill with ground fish. Form remaining fish into balls.
Place on top of boiling onion mixture. Top with tails. Cover and simmer
about 2 hours. Shake pot occasionally to keep from sticking.
