Helpful hints

  • Use fresh or frozen cod. If frozen, thaw before preparing recipe.
  • Use Dromdary® brand diced pimento peppers because this brand does not contain added salt. If unavailable, substitute pimentos or roasted red peppers with lowest sodium content and omit salt from recipe. Fresh roasted red peppers may also be substituted.
  • When adding very small amounts of salt, try combining with pepper or other ground spices. Use a refillable shaker to distribute evenly over food.
