About this Recipe

By: Willow

Willow, like most dogs I know, goes a little cray cray for Fish, and let’s face it, she could have worse vices.

I made this recipe up to combine a good mix of healthy fats (Salmon) lean protein (Cottage Cheese) and also a good dose of carby veg (Potatoes and peas).

It’s become a staple in our house and is really quick and easy to make.

One pie will last Willow for 4-5 meals – Willow is 8kg

Beware though – your dog will constantly ask for more of this!


  • 2 x 170g tins pink salmon – skinless and boneless
  • 250g cottage cheese
  • 2 medium sized potatoes
  • 150g frozen peas
  • 1tbsp finely chopped parsley

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Peel and chop the potatoes into bite sized chunks.

Step 2

Place in a pan of cold water, bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes, or until soft enough to mash – Add In the peas for the last 5 minutes.

Step 3

Drain the potatoes and peas and mash – you don’t have to get it silky smooth, I actually prefer to leave it a with a little texture. Leave to cool completely

Step 4

Once cooked you can start layering your pie. It’s totally optional to do the pie layered, you could just mix all together, or even make balls with. Personally I find layering quite therapeutic – like when making a lasagne! Grab your desired dish you want to use, I use a loaf tin, but you could use a lasagne or casserole dish. Place the salmon in as the first layer, patting down with the back of a spoon as you go along.

Step 5

Follow with the cottage cheese layer, before finishing with the potato and pea layer, again smooth done with the back of a spoon and sprinkle the parsley over the top. Cover in cling film and store in the fridge. This will last for 4-5 days.
