RECIPE: Smoky Maple-Glaze Salmon Supper #NutrishforCats


As you know from our cookbooks, we love to cook for our dogs for occasional meals and treats. Just as we like to prepare dishes for two-legged family members, cooking for our dogs gives us the chance to show our love through food.

And it also gives us the opportunity to know just what’s in our food. When we cook a meal, we know that we’ve selected meat and produce at our local grocery store. We use whole ingredients. Our recipes have no unrecognizable ingredient names that we can’t pronounce, just whole food with no artificial preservatives, no artificial colors, and no artificial flavors.

We like that Rachael Ray’s Nutrish pet food line also contains no artificial preservatives, colors, or flavors AND no byproducts! Recently Nutrish (a company that donates all proceeds to help homeless pets) launched the Nutrish for Cats line of dry and wet cat foods. Like the dog food line, the cat foods are also made with wholesome ingredients like those you’d find in your favorite recipes.

And, by that, we mean recipes like this one! Rachael Ray created this Smoky Maple-Glazed Salmon Supper with ingredients much like that found in Nutrish for Cats. (Want to give Nutrish a try with your cats or as a donation to your favorite shelter? Here’s a Switch to Nutrish coupon!) We love that the line is within reach of everyday budgets: a three-pound bag of dry cat food sells for $7.49 right now at Walmart while a 2.8-ounce cup of wet cat food retails from 94 cents to $1.09.


This week, we received Rachael Ray’s salmon recipe for special Dinner for Two project with our cats.


With the fixings and the recipe in hand, I headed to the kitchen to create this Smoky Maple-Glazed Salmon Supper. (I find it impossible to follow a recipe to the letter…so I doubled the Old Bay seafood seasoning and left off the chives, because I wanted to share this yummy dish with Tiki and Irie!)

The results were delicious and healthy for ALL of us!

We are giving away a sampler of Nutrish for Cats foods over on CatTipper. Please enter and pop over to see another yummy Rachael Ray recipe: Teriyaki Chicken with Brown Whole Grain Rice!
