Homemade Fish Delight

A recipe perfect for large cichlids, catfish, etc.

2 lbs Flat fish (haddock, sole, flounder, hake)

2 Cans Tiny whole shrimp packed in water, not oil

2 Cans Minced crabmeat 16 oz.

Fresh spinach or peas

Blanch spinach/peas, drain well, and set aside. Drain shrimp and crab well. Cut fish into 1" cubes, and combine with all other ingredients. If using a blender or food processor, chop fish into a coarse paste, then add other ingredients. Using a meat grinder, process all ingredients using a fine die. Pack mixture into resealable sandwich bags, and pack down to about 1/4" thickness.

When feeding fish, use a very sharp knife (a pumpkin carving knife is perfect) and shave strips into tank. For smaller fish you can grate food into the aquarium.

Feed no more than once each day, and use care not to overfeed. Zucchini or romaine lettuce would be fair substitutes for spinach, but we like spinach. When adding any of your own ingredients be careful: you don't want to be left with over 2 pounds of useless food. Always choose a non-oily fish if substituting.
Have a great day! Judy
