Helpful hints

  • If low-sodium, canned tuna is unavailable, look for the brand of tuna lowest in sodium and rinse under running water for 1 to 2 minutes to further reduce sodium content.
  • Traditional ceviche is made from raw fish or seafood marinated in lemon or lime juice. Acid from the lemon “cooks” the fish. This is a safer version of ceviche for kidney patients.
  • Substitute parsley for cilantro if desired.
  • Water crackers and low sodium triskets are great replacements for the unsalted saltines.

Love this site so many great things and I have been told to low sodium and low protein diet. Seems most of these recipes are just what I need Is this so correct in My thinking. I have been eating Green and Red and Yellow peppers saluted in Olive oil and added even some canned tuna or salmon.

Made this for the boyfriend last week. He said it was better than regular tuna with mayo. Instead of the crackers, I used a tostada shell. Will definately make this again.
