Learn to be crafty with condiments by avoiding the hidden sodium lurking in your favorite prepared toppings by making your own lower-sodium condiments. By: Serena Ball, MS, RD
A 3-ounce serving of plain, cooked shrimp is packed with 19 grams of powerful protein, only 100 calories and 140 mg of sodium (if the shrimp is not pre-treated with salt water). Don’t douse fresh shrimp with sodium-laden cocktail sauce (which packs 600 to 700 mg per ¼ cup serving), but instead make a simple vinegar and shallot-based sauce known as a mignonette for a tart, fresh accompaniment to seafood. This Pink Peppercorn Mignonette recipe has only 1 mg sodium.
