Helpful hints

  • Low-sodium vegetable broth may be substituted for wine if desired.
  • If cilantro is unavailable, use flat-leaf parsley. Other herbs such as mint, chives and dill can be added to suit individual taste.
  • Any combination of seafood – shrimp, crab, lobster, or scallops – can be used.
  • To reduce fat use low-fat mayonnaise, but be aware the sodium is 100 mg higher per serving.
  •  Romaine, iceberg or butterhead lettuce are great choices.
  • This refreshing, high-protein salad can stand alone as an entrée or can serve as delicious filling for a sandwich, or a topping for low-sodium crackers.
  • For diets not restricted in potassium, can serve this as stuffing for a tomato.

This is a very light and delicious way to get protein into the renal diet. The comment below comes from misinformation. This is NOT a "high sodium" or "high phosphorus" recipe. As an entree, it provides less than 1/4 of the recommended sodium, about 1/4 of the daily potassium requirement for an HD patient, and a lot of protein for only about 1/4 to 1/3 of the average phosphorus requirement.

sorry this is a recipe that I try to stay away from because of high sod,pot and phos. Moderator comment: Add some low sodium crackers and a beverage you have a complete meal, which could still meet 1/3 of your daily targets for a diet limited in potassium, sodium and phosphorus goals.
