Great! I cooked it and put it (skin & all) into a blender-

with the cooking water and divided it up into 1 cup portions in freezer bags. I also cooked a dozen portions of ground venison today.
Yesterday I did 15 bags of rabbit.
I like having a variety already to go in the freezer!

_Zero_ Skin is fine-- quite good for them, as long as it's boiled/blended. I have some friends who have had issues giving their dogs smoked salmon skins (tougher and difficult to break down in the gut) but my guy loves skin from a fresh grilled fish, canned salmon, or boiled salmon.

NJDobbie Yes the skin is great, in fact if you see a food list "salmon meal", that is mostly skin and salmon organs. Labeling rules do not require fish ingredients to be labled as "by-products".

JakodaCD OA I work at a fish market

I don't particularly like the bones either, and remove them..YES, cook it up (pacific salmon carries a parasite),,throw it all in the blender with the juice (I poach it up and keep the juices as well).. Skin is good but I do find mashing it up is best vs throwing them a whole skin..

Salmon skin ok?

I am cooking a large amount of fresh wild caught salmon today for my dog today.

I plan to to put all of the meat, plus the cooking water, in the blender (paranoid of bones, even soft ones).

Is there any reason that I need to remove the skin?
