A Halachic Riddle

I cooked something in my kitchen. It’s completely pareve and edible, but I can’t add it to a dairy dish nor to a meat dish. I can only eat it as is, or improve it by adding other pareve items.

In a few days I will describe how I (accidentally) made this dish.

  1. fish cooked in a fleishig pot?

    I’m with Rafi..(although I couldn’t have figured it out myself)

    Rafi, I still have some left over in the freezer. . .

  4. do I get a prize? 🙂

  5. thanks but I don’t eat fish…

  6. My guess is the same as Rafi’s guess, but I got there a little differently.
    In Israel and in some American communities, some Sephardim might serve a parve item cooked in a meat pot with a dairy item like yogurt later. But, if they follow the rulings of some Sephardi authorities, they would not serve a fish item with dairy. So meat or milk aside I immediately concluded it must be fish. But since you are Ashkenazi, I had to add fish in a meat pot.
    Halacha is fun!

  7. I got the fish part, but good thinking Rafi, I’m guessing.

  8. Either what Rafi said, or with a bit of a twist – fish, cooked in a pareve/disposable dish, made with onions that you cut with a fleishig knife?

  9. Curious!

    Is there a halachic reason for not mixing fish and meat? Or just a (very understandable) personal preference?

  12. Yes, there is a halacha about not mixing fish and meat; the Talmud mentions a health concern. They can be eaten one after the other, though, and usually some neutral food or drink is eaten in-between. Some communities also don’t eat fish and milk together, but that is based on a textual error in a later halachic work.

    Interesting. But cooking fish in a fleishig pot doesn’t violate the halacha about not mixing fish and meat?

    We looked it up in the Shulchan Aruch, and it is okay.
