Pollock & Sardine Supreme

Atlantic pollock & Atlantic sardines combine for a fish supper (or dinner) certain to please any dog, sensitive tummy or otherwise!

With lean, low-fat Atlantic pollock, nutrient-rich sardines for essential fatty acids (those all-important omegas), and fresh fruit and vegetables including sweet potatoes, carrots and green beans, this is a meal any dog will find both enjoyable and easy to digest.

Make your dog's homemade meals complete by adding one of our unique blends of 100% natural essential vitamins & minerals.
Dice fish (bone if necessary), add fish and a small amount of water to a saucepan and cook for approximately 10 minutes on a low heat until fish becomes flakey. Add more water if necessary. When cooked, drain any liquid into the vegetable pan and set fish aside until required. (If using tinned sardines, there is no need to bone. Simply drain spring water or oil direct into vegetable pan before adding the tinned sardines to the pollock towards the end of the cooking time).
If necessary, wash and then dice all vegetables. Don’t peel. There’s too much goodness in the skin and close to the surface of most vegetables to waste!
Use outer leaves of the cabbage unless brown.
Add Fish Herb Blend and vegetables to pan, longest cooking times first. In this case, carrots first followed 5 minutes later by sweet potato, green beans and potatoes. When cooked, turn off heat and add cabbage.
After about 5 minutes, add Eggshell Powder, salt and safflower oil to vegetables to make these meals complete, and then blend all the ingredients together.
Allow mix to cool before apportioning and/or serving.
About this Recipe
This recipe is based on 48% Atlantic Pollock, 12% Atlantic Sardines, 10% Sweet Potatoes, 9% Carrots, 9% Green Beans, 7% Potatoes, 5% Cabbage. Dry weight 1916g. Cooked weight 2503g. Feed either 100% homemade or add 50/50 to existing food as a dressing or topping.

This recipe would be just as nourishing for you and your family as it would be for your dog. (Don’t tell our dogs, but it tastes just great!). Just add the seasoning of your choice when you serve your human family, and not when you’re cooking your dog’s food, and before apportioning, add the Eggshell Powder, safflower and salmon oil. That said, you could try this recipe as it is, and you could certainly try it with the safflower oil which aside from being good for you, has a fairly neutral flavour.
It’s perfectly okay to used tinned sardines, ideally in spring water, but oil will do fine as well, or to replace the sardines with tinned tuna or mackerel, as long as nothing is in tomato sauce. It’s also okay to interchange pollock for cod or haddock.
