Make your own scrumptious salmon cat biscuits

Learn how to make tasty salmon cat biscuits with our vet-approved recipe.

There’s no denying how much we love biscuits here in the UK. So much so that we have an entire day to celebrate the delicious treats with National Biscuit Day.

But why should we only be allowed to celebrate the day? Surely, our pets deserve to devour some delicious biscuits as well. Of course, most biscuits that we enjoy are not suitable for cats, which is why we recommend making your feline friend their own biscuits this National Biscuit Day.

If you’re looking to make a tasty treat for your cat, look no further than our salmon biscuit recipe, which is approved by our vets and are incredibly easy to make!

Our biscuit recipe is purr-fect for cats that can’t get enough of salmon. One biscuit = 10% of your cat’s recommended daily calories, so just remember to reduce your cat’s daily food by 10% to ensure that they are not being overfed. You only need a handful of ingredients for these biscuits, and they can be made in three easy steps.

Ingredients on a chopping board, including flour, salmon and an egg.
  • 170g of skinless and boneless salmon (one tin)
  • One egg
  • 120g of plain flour


Step 1: Prepare the ingredients

Start by making sure that you’ve got the right amount of ingredients. Use kitchen weighing scales to measure 120g flour and 170g salmon. Once you‘ve measured the ingredients, mix them all together in a blender until you have a smooth, thick dough.


Step 2: Prepare the dough 

Dough roll up on a chopping board and then shown flat in the next picture.

Now that you have your dough, roll it on a flat service and cut biscuit shapes with a small cutter. If you don’t have a rolling pin, you can always use something else, such as a water bottle, as long as it’s heavy enough to roll out the dough.

With this recipe, we recommend making 30 small biscuits. They should be quite thin and roughly the size of a pound coin or similar. We didn’t have a biscuit cutter, so instead we cleaned a bottle lid and used that to measure out the biscuits.

Step 3: Cook the biscuits 

Pieces of biscuit placed on a baking tray and put into the oven.

When you’ve cut out your 30 biscuits, place them in the oven at 180°C (for fan ovens) and 200°C (for non-fan ovens). Leave your biscuits in the oven for about 25 minutes or until they are golden. Make sure that you turn them around halfway through.

Allow them to cool. Then you can safely serve one a day to your cat – granted that you’ve reduced their food by 10%. These biscuits can even be stored for up to three days if kept in an airtight seal in the fridge. If you want your cat biscuits to last longer, keep them in an airtight seal and store them in the freezer as they’ll keep for up to a month.
