Make These Mini Fish Tacos for Cats for the Ultimate Fiesta Feast

Ready for a fiesta feast? This mini fish taco cat treat recipe, featuring yummy grilled salmon, will get your feline’s mouth watering.

Fresh salmon is available anytime of the year and in addition to being so good for you, it’s also a scrumptious and healthy treat for your cat. We love carving off a piece of the salmon we’re having for dinner and transforming it into the ultimate kitty fiesta treat. Created by recipe developer, cookbook author and food blogger Alison Lewis, these mini fish tacos for cats are simple to make and only require six ingredients.

But this cat treat recipe can be a fiesta all on its own, too! Learn how to whip it up below.

As with any human food, pet parents looking to incorporate new foods in their dog’s diet should consult with their veterinarian beforehand.

1 8-inch whole wheat tortilla wrap (Check the ingredients list to ensure that there are no artificial sweeteners, which are toxic to pets)

1 Inaba Churu Tuna with Salmon Puree Cat Treat

2 oz. fresh, wild-caught salmon filet, cubed

1/4 teaspoon catnip

A small amount of extra-virgin olive oil


Frying pan


Cutting board


2-inch round cookie or biscuit cutter

Measuring spoon


1 Take your cubed salmon filet out of the fridge and dry with a paper towel a few minutes before cooking, so it may reach room temperature. Heat a pan over medium-high heat (about 400 degrees Fahrenheit) and add a thin layer of extra-virgin olive oil.

2 Place the fish in the pan, cooking for 5 to 7 minutes on each side. (It’s cooked through when the fish flakes easily with a fork.)

3 After removing from the pan, allow the salmon to rest for about 3 minutes before chopping into kitty-bite-sized pieces. You’ll need two teaspoons of chopped salmon.
