Helpful hints

  • Recipe was calculated with farmed Atlantic salmon. Wild Alaskan salmon is slightly lower in fat and slightly higher in potassium and phosphorus. Both are acceptable healthy choices for a kidney diet.
  • You can also cook this recipe in the oven at 350°F for 10 to 15 minutes until done. A good rule of thumb is to allow 10 minutes for each inch of fillet thickness.
  • If you are on a lower protein diet adjust portion to match your meal plan.

I can only have 2oz of salmon. Can this be modified ? What is the postassium level at only 2oz ? Dietitian Comment: You can adjust the number of servings to approximately 9 servings; which would give you about 2 ounces per serving instead of the 3 ounces. It would bring the potassium down to about 295mg per serving of the meal.

Made this for dinner last night. It was absolutely delicious. The little bit of cayenne and Dijon mustard was just the right amount of punch to set it in gourmet class. Thanks! Couldn't use the grill because it's January in the northwest.

The recipes from DaVita are excellent but I usually only need enough for one or two. Some companies offer a separate box for different serving sizes. I think this would be helpful.

I want to try this out, but if I prepare it for 3; I can just halve everything? Dietitian comment: Yes, this recipe should work well if the ingredients are divided in half.

Is there a way to change recipe servings from 6 to 2? Is there a way to change recipe servings from 6 to 2? Dietitian comment: Reduce salmon to 8 ounces uncooked and scale the other ingredients to 1/3 to 1/2 the original amount.

This recipe says its for CKD non-dialysis, but the salmon steak recipe was not for CDK non-dialysis. Is salmon the issue or the sauce? Moderator comment: Actually the salmon steak can be included for CKD non-dialysis as long as the portion matches the recommended ounces of protein in your meal plan. I will adjust the diet types.

Excellent results, terrific taste, easy to make. Because it was late in the day, I baked it at 400 degrees for ~12-14 minutes and it turned out great.

This is a delicious sauce, especially for salmon. Easy to make and very flavorful. I used fresh basil and dried dill, and it was perfect!

I like what I see and I can't wait to try out some of these recipes. I thought I wouldn't be able to eat any of the foods I like and see I was wrong.
