Simple Fishcakes for Dogs

A recipe from SUE BORGERSEN
WRITERS ABROAD MAGAZINE : THE THIRD SPACE
As promised in the last edition : Really Simple Fishcakes for Dogs ( also good for sharing with their humans )
Ingredients :
• About 1 / 2 lb of fish — we used halibut or cod cheeks because they have no bones .
• ( you could substitute 2 cans of sardines in water or olive oil )
• 2 sweet potatoes medium size
• 1 egg to bind
• Finely chopped veggies of your choice , including parsley . The illustration shows zucchini ( courgettes ), carrots and parsley . We use a food processor to give us a fine chop — a rough chop is harder for the hounds to digest .
Method : Steam fish and flake apart . You don ’ t need to do this for your sardines Gently boil the sweet potatoes until tender . Then mash . Combine all ingredients and form into patties . You can serve these just as they are — or toast them briefly ( longer for the humans ) on a hotplate or griddle . Allow to cool before offering them to your best friend . Serve with raw finely chopped veggies .
Bonus recipe : pill pockets that work every time . We rarely need to give our dogs pills but when we do we ’ ve found this an excellent way of giving them without a struggle : Steam chicken hearts until cooked through but still tender . Keep in the fridge . When needed they make perfect pill pockets .
