The Bracha Rishona on Gefilte Fish is Shehakol, and the Bracha Acharona is Borei Nefashos.
Although gefilte fish may be prepared with bread crumbs or matza flour, their purpose is just to hold the ground fish and other ingredients together. Thus, only a Shehakol need be said. (See also Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chaim 208b, and Mishnah Berurah 208:8).
Blessed are You Hashem our God King of the universe, Everything was created through His words.
Baruch Atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech Haolam, Shehakol Nihyah Bidvaro.
Blessed are You, Hashem our God, King of the universe, Who creates numerous living things with their deficiencies; for all that You have created with which to maintain the life of every being. Blessed is He, the life of the worlds.
Baruch Atah Adonai Eloheinu Melech Haolam, Borei Nefashos Rabos V'chesronan Al Kol Ma Shebarasa L'hachayos Bahem Nefesh Kol Chai, Baruch Chei Haolamim.
