I've been trying to find time to make some frozen food. I use a stick blender and and the following ingredients:

Cheap white coloured fish, a small quantity;
Small cooked northern shrimp;
pea or carrot baby food;
peas (sometimes)
astaxanthin powder (for colour);
spirulina powder (sometimes)
bird or reptile vitamins (sometimes);
dulse - seaweed (sometimes);
gelatin (always).
I blend it all up, flatten it in slabs inside freezer bags and let the gelatin set. Then I freeze it and break off chunks as needed.
I've made batches to deliver medications to fish, usually dewormers, but mainly I am after quality frozen food for an average of 7 to 9 dollars a pound.

Does anyone else have recipes to share, or suggestions as to ingredients?

I have only made goldfish food this way but I got the recipe from internet.

The other thing I have done is putting shrimp in the blender with a little bit of water (otherwise they don't mash well) and then I turned them into little chunks on a plastic cutting board and froze them this way.

The advantage of it being that you have pieces of the right amount as I have had the problem that I wasn't able to break them into the right sizes after they were frozen.
