Helpful hints

  • Instead of shrimp, you can substitute 3/4 pound of fresh, boneless chicken strips, cooked 6 minutes.
  • Use low-fat cream cheese to reduce fat to 15 grams, however sodium increases to 466 mg per serving.
  • Look for half & half or nondairy creamer without phosphate additives.

ridiculous. 1 oz of past & 3 oz shrimp & you call that a meal. Way to high in potassium for what you're getting. You guys need to get realistic with your serving sizes. My husband is 6'3 & weighs 230 lbs. If I served this amount, he'd be headed for McDonalds. Lousy rating because of high potassium & small serving size. No wonder people have trouble sticking to the diet. Dietitian comment: The pasta can be adjusted. It sounds like your husband would require a larger serving based on his large size. Potassium restricted diets range from 2,000 to 3,00o mg daily. This recipe can fit a low potassium plan. We suggest to work with his dietitian for individualized serving recommendations.

I made it exactly as listed. It was good but needed some spice. I found a 1/2 tsp of Mrs. Dash did the trick. I will make this again.

your recipes are very high in potassium, sodium, phosphrous, that I should avoid, any help? Dietitian comment: Our recipes have been created or modified to reduce the amount of potassium, sodium and phosphorus and have been reviewed to meet 'kidney-friendly' guidelines. Each individual has their own nutrient goals. Perhaps you can work with your dietitian to be sure you have a good understanding of your daily targets for those nutrients and their recommendations for recipes.

This recipe was very good, except for the fact it didn't say to cook the shrimp in any oil or butter or any kind of liquid, so we cooked them in a bit of butter. That probably increased the potassium somewhat, but it was tasty.
