  necessary. Transfer to bowl and knead until smooth.  Set aside.
  Fish Filling: =============
       Steam fish until just cooked.  Flake into small pieces and set
       Heat butter in a small skillet then add onion and scallions and
  saute until onion wilts, 3 to 5 minutes.
       Stir in flaked fish, cilantro, cumin and salt and pepper,
  stirring gently over medium heat 2 minutes.
       Set aside and cool completely.
  For Tahini Sauce: =================
       Place tahini and a 1/2 cup water in processor or blender; blend
  until smooth.
       Add wine vinegar, garlic and salt and pepper; blend until smooth.
       Add enough water to bring sauce to pouring consistency.
  Transfer to small bowl and stir in parsley.
       Set aside, covered, at room temperature.
  To Assemble: ============
       To assemble, place small bowl if ice water on work surface. Using
  palms, form golf ball-size balls of bulgur mixture.  Dipping fingers
  in ice water as you work shape each ball into a hollow tube around
  your index finger, gently pressing mixture into small cigar-shaped
  tubes about 3 inches long.
       Moisten fingers frequently and patch any cracks as you work.
       Slip each shell off your finger and fill with about 1 tablespoon
  of cooled fish filling using a small spoon.  Press ends of tubes over
  fish filling, forming a tight seal.
       Cover and freeze until firm, at least 2 hours.
       Heat 2 inches of vegetable oil in large saucepan to 375 F.
       Fry kobebas until golden, 4 to 5 minutes, turning once.
       Serve immediately with tahini sauce.
