Spoiled Rotten Kitty Food
Great for cats, dogs and even humans!
24 oz Roasted Wild-Caught Sockeye Salmon Filet (including all the bones and skin) 4 oz Sweet Potato, diced 4 oz Carrot, diced 4 oz Celery, diced 4 oz Sweet Peas, diced 1 Garlic Clove, minced 12 cups of Bone Broth
Roast the Sockeye at 425oF for 8-12 minutes, depending on how you like it done. For cat food, I take it to almost well done. Then, add the vegetables and bone broth to a big soup pot. Bring to just a boil, then reduce to a simmer until vegetables are soft, stirring frequently (usually about 20-25 minutes). When vegetables are done, add in roasted sockeye in pieces and break apart to stir and combine. Once you have this sockeye “stew”, you can transfer it to a high-speed blender and blend until you get a soupy puree. You may have to blend in batches, depending on your blender size. This recipe makes 14 servings (at 1⁄2 cup servings), which is enough for my 10lb cat for 7 days. I serve him 1⁄2 c. in the morning and 1⁄2 c. in the evening, spaced 12 hours apart. For storage, I usually put 4 days of food in the fridge, and freeze the other 3 days in a muffin pan. These pre-portioned amounts make thawing and feeding a breeze!
