Natural Goodness for Improved Canine Health

Poached Herring & Potatoes

Grain & gluten free fish recipe

Poached Atlantic herrings with mixed vegetables including potatoes, broccoli, carrots, parsnips, apples and peas, topped off with hard boiled eggs.

If you’re still feeding your dog commercial dog food, we would suggest using this meal as a dressing or topping by combining the two over the course of three or four days. Reduce your dog’s other food accordingly so as to avoid unhealthy weight gain.

We tried this recipe and it tasted very nice. With some added boiled potatoes and perhaps a homemade tomato sauce it would be just as nourishing for you and your family. If you need any further seasoning, add when you serve your human family, and add the Eggshell Powder and safflower oil when you serve or apportion your dog’s meals.



Wrap herrings in foil with a little water to stop them sticking to the foil. Add to an oven-proof dish and cook for 20 minutes at 320°F/160°c or gas mark 3. (Conventional oven may need longer). When cooked, drain any liquid into the vegetable pan and set fish aside. Add vegetables to a pan with the Fish Herb Blend and approx. 142ml (¼ pint) of water, longest cooking times first – carrots followed 5 minutes later by potato, parsnip, peas and broccoli. When cooked, turn off heat and add apple. After about 5 minutes, add Eggshell Powder and safflower oil to vegetables and then blend ingredients together. Hard boil 3 small eggs and either mix in with other ingredients or use as a topping. Allow to cool before apportioning and/or serving. Either freeze what you don’t immediately need or keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.
