Salmon Jerky DIY

Salmon Jerky

This is another DIY recipe that is super super easy. Does your dog love salmon? Do they enjoy being spoiled or do you enjoy spoiling your dog? Then you totally need to make your dog some salmon jerky dog treats. Your dog with totally thank you!

Why Salmon?

Salmon is a fatty fish and has a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. This makes it good for your dogs skin and coat health and supports a healthy immune system.

With this salmon jerky you can make as much or as little as you want. If you end up making too much salmon jerky, it isn’t an issue as it can easily be stored for up to 3 months in your fridge. I totally prefer making enough for about a month As if I use my oven it’s already on for an extended period of time but also my dehydrator holds a good amount of the salmon when sliced.

Directions (with an oven): 

  1. Preheat your oven to 200*F
  2. Freeze your salmon for about 10-20 minutes to make it easy to slice.
  3. Cut thin slices about 1/8 thick.
  4. Place the slices filets on your baking sheet. Use tin foil for an easy cleanup or simply spray your pan with non-stick spray.
  5. Bake for about 4-6 hours until the moisture is gone. You want it to bend but not break when it is twisted.
  6. Your jerky can last up to 3 months in the fridge or up to 6 months in the freezer.

    About how many ounces of salmon is needed for a month’s worth of jerky?

    1. Rae Blogs

      That will depend a bit on the size of your dog and how many treats you give. I do a variety but if I do them as training treats I make them small and use about a pound which is enough for a month for both my 50 pound dogs. Most often I do a single filet and cut it into a variety of sizes.
      If I know the size of your dog and the intended use, I’d be able to help a bit more.
