Low Sodium Recipes

Any good Low Sodium Recipies?
rohvannyn responded:
Any recipe can be made low sodium by choosing ingredients that have less salt in them. There is low sodium soy sauce if you like asian food, for example. A good way to cut sodium is by choosing fresh vegetables and meats rather than by buying frozen or canned. They often have salt added. Also, if you are cooking chicken, much of it has been injected with salt brine so check the packaging. Choose flavor over salt by experimenting with herbs and salt free flavorings like Mrs. Dash.

If you need a salty taste, there are salt substitutes that use potassium instead, but that needs to be added during cooking because it tastes funny Watch your bread too, and maybe even bake it yourself. Finally, cook without salt but provide a shaker at the table. That way you can put a little salt on the surface of the food, where you can taste it, but ultimately have a lot less. The less you eat, the less you will need.

Go to an Asian section in your store and get some ramen noodles. No flavor packets in these. Follow the instructions for fried noodles.
In a skillet add 2 tbsp butter/margarine or 2 tbsp sesame seed oil, 1 tsp minced garlic
Saute 4 oz of imitation crab meat or shrimp
Toss in noodles and fry for 2 minutes.
a squeeze of lemon and enjoy

You can also add some stir fry veggies. I've used baby corn, water chestnuts and mushrooms sauted with the crab/shrimp then added noodles.
If you use canned veggies, rinse them first. This will reduce any salt used in the canning process.
It's tasty and no sodium unless you add it.

Good Luck
