    Default Seafood Mix Recipes Here.....

    As most of you know I am really into BH mixes.
    I want to expand to Seafood mixes.

    If you have a recipe please post it.

    What is important though is not just posting ingredients but posting how you prepare them along with mixing them all the way to your finished product.

    If you have thoughts on why you use one type of seafood over another that be great to.

    Also if you know which ingredient promotes color that would be good info to have also.

    Thanks!

    Greg ~ here is a very simple recipe I got from Willie ~ I just made it actually


    I buy ground beef, Excel brand, which lists the fat content. I use the 93/7, which is 93% protein, 7% fat. I buy an equal amount of pollack, because it's the cheapest fish available. The beef comes in 3 lb logs.

    After defrosting the pollack, I mix them 1:1 in a food processor with some frozen veggies -- whatever is cheapest. I usually use chopped spinach.

    It only takes about 20 - 30 seconds to mix them in the food processor since the beef is already ground. The mix is stored in freezer bags (1 gal size), packed flat and frozen. Next day, I chopped them up and feed.

    It only takes me about an hour to make up 12 - 13 lb of food. The whole thing costs about $45, so its <$3/lb. I don't add any vitamin pre-mix, spirulina flakes, gelatin binders, etc



    I did not use pollack however, but shrimp ~ I paid about $33.00 total!


    Marie ~


    Getting ready....


    The drawback of no food processor...


    Shrimp, Beef, Spinach...The shrimp was like paste using the beaters!



    The vultures below....the smell of shrimp thru out the house.....




    ....Newf getting close!




    all mixed together! Big pile of .........beefheart!




    All bagged ~ 20 quart-size slabs ~ and they loved it as usual

    Hmmm, Marie, when unexpected company comes over you can whip out one of those packets, put it in a skillet, put on some gravy and walla! quick meal! LOL.

    Would also work if you ran out of cat food

    Exclamation Re: Seafood Mix Recipes Here.....

    Marie,

    There is no beef or any other meat that is 93% protein. In the long run, using ground beef of any cut will cause your discus serious health problems and a shortened lifespan. (Not my opinion, but scientific fact from data obtained from empherical research conducted by scientists with PhD's in fish physiology and nutrition)

    It does say seafood mix doesn't it? I am so sorry Greg ~ I can delete it if you want?

    I saw seafood and then I thought shrimp and I had just gotten back from the store to make it and crap....

    Greg this topic came up a few days ago on our local board.I make up a seafood paste all the time for the koi and this is what I use.

    You can make it stick together by using Knox's gelitan but how fine you puree or chop it up will depend on the size of the fish that you feeding. I leave mine fairly chunky


    • beef heart
    • whole Prawns, shell head and all
    • scallops
    • clams
    • mussels
    • cleaned squid
    • Romaine lettuce
    • whole smelt, guts and all
    • wheat germ
    • kelp powder
    • cod liver oil
    • orange juice
    • spirulina powder
    • garlic
    • red pepper flakes



    I chop/puree/chunk each meat to get the desired size. The Prawns and the beef heart are the base ingredients. The kelp powder and the wheat germ are used to control the moisture levels. Then the whole thing is mixed together..smells great

    Graham. Thanks for your recipe. That is quite an involved one. I like those kinds. I like my fish getting many different types of food together in one feeding.

    I am though looking for a seafood only mix. No BH involved.


    Dpt8. Thanks. I'll check it out.
