I found this recipe on cooksrecipes.com It makes a very tasty little treat. Canned mackerel can be salty.
- 1⁄2 cup canned mackerel, drained
- 1 cup dry whole grain breadcrumbs
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 1⁄2 teaspoon brewer's yeast (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- In a bowl, mash the mackerel into very small pieces.
- Add remaining ingredients.
- Mix well.
- Drop by 1/4 teaspoonfuls onto a greased baking sheet.
- Bake at 350 f for 8 minutes.
- Store in airtight container in refrigerator or freezer.
My cat loved these, in spite of the fact that I apparently goofed up somewhat. I couldn't find canned mackerel *anywhere*, so I ended up having to use canned trout. The mixture ended up being *very* dry and crumbly, to the point that I had to mush it together into balls just to get it to stick together. I assume that the problem is a result of the difference in the fish. If I can find mackerel, I'd like to try this again and see how/if the texture improves. Either way, I will make this again. :)
I am giving this 5 stars even though I personally did not taste them LOL But they did wake one of my cats from his 6 hour morning catnap and earned me ALOT of grateful purrs. I roll the "dough" into a ball and just tore off bits and dropped onto a cookie sheet.Thanks for posting Dreamer Made for Zaar tag Nov 2008 Opps forgot to add I rinsed the mackerel under cold water to get rid of some of the salt.
