In a food processor, finely chop fish and remove to a bowl. Add water,bread crumbs or matzo meal, eggs, onions, chopped carrots, salt and pepper and mix well.
Spray a 12"x3"x3" or a heavy bread pan with a kosher spray. Put one half of mixture in pan and tap down. Place cooked, mashed carrots down the middle of mixture in a stripe.
Add rest of fish and tap down. Cover with foil and place in a water bath. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 1 hour. Uncover pan and let cook for another half hour or until knife comes out clean. Cool and refrigerate.
Turn over on plate. Slice and serve. I usually place the slices on a leaf of butter lettuce or radicchio and decorate with a stem of parsley or dill.
Fortunately our local fish store will grind the fish, carrots, and onions. Saves a lot of work.
