Recipe: Tuna Treats for Boo

3 legged dog enjoying treats after surgery to remove the cancerous paw.
What I wouldn't eat myself, I wouldn't feed my furkids with it either. And that is one reason why I am still baking for my furkids. While I have a cat and a dog, both are not fussy over the ingredients but fish certainly sends the two of them going gaga. This batch of tuna treats are the usual ones that we bakes but I figured out that since I never named my recipes and I was baking this for my pal's furkid Boo that just had his paw amputated because of cancer, the name Tuna Treats for Boo just became the name of the treat and the file of the recipe.
A quick and simple recipe that one can make it easily. Prep time 5 minutes and cook time 20 minutes! The time the kids run through them can be less than 5 minutes the last time I left a pan unattended. The cat topples the pan, it falls to the ground, both cat and dog devour in under 5 minutes that I ran out from the shower after rinsing off my shampoo!

Ingredients:
• 200g of fish or 1 can of tuna in oil (choose the brands wisely and opt for the one with the least sodium)
• 2 eggs
• 200g plain flour
• 10g of seaweed (optional)
• 2 cloves of garlic (optional)

Method:
• Chop up the garlic 
• Mix flour, seaweed and garlic together. The seaweed breaks into smaller pieces as you mix them well.
• Add wet ingredients of eggs and fish or canned tuna (including the oil)
• Mix ingredient well with a fork.
• Place ingredient on a baking sheet or on a pan. Flatten with the back of the fork.
• Cook in oven at 180°C for 15 to 20 minutes.
• Let it cool and cut into slices or cube.
These treats keep well in the freezer for a few month or 2 weeks in the fridge. However, since it is so easy to make them, I just make them every now and then. I get the job of seeing the kids wait by the oven while the treats are baking. However, I learnt too that I should not leave it to cool unattended too!
Golden goodness fresh from the oven. A little chewy inside and crisp outside when its hot.
I cut them into strips so that I can give them as a whole slice or break them into smaller pieces as a lure for some of the strays that I am trying to get close to for my rescue work. The smaller pieces also fit into kongs and toys that I use to keep both the cat and dog entertained when we are off to work.
