LOL.. I know how you feel.. my car has been in the shop for 2 weeks (getting it back tomorrow though.. yay!)

Here's the recipe (courtesy of Brenda from another forum.. cross posted with permission)
I use only human grade items and amounts vary depending on how much you want to make, I make large amount and freeze it.
1-2 Fresh raw or cooked shrimp
3-6 fresh spinach leaves...depends if you use baby spinach or frozen, either will work
2-4 fresh garlic cloves

I use a garlic press and crush the garlic and blanch the spinach so it is warm and wilted and use a fork of side or a knife to smash these two together and make a green garlic paste and I chop the shrimp and smash the green garlic paste all together so you have a "green garlic shrimp paste". I place this in a zip lock bag and smash flat and freeze to make it easier to break off what I need to feed.
You can vary 2 items to what you have, you can use peas instead of spinach and fish instead of shrimp, but use only fresh garlic.


I've fed this on a number of occasions.. for sick fish and tail biters. It really perks them up. Just remember that you should still vary his diet.. like this 3-4 times a week, and pellets the rest of the time.
