Helpful hints

  • Purchase six mahi mahi fillets, 4 ounces each.
  • Try the DaVita.com low sodium Mango Chutney recipe or use commercially prepared chutney. Mango Chutney is located in preserves & jams section of the grocery store. Check labels for sodium content – some brands are high in sodium.
  • Adjust fish portion for a lower or higher protein diet.
