Seafood and Kikkoman Go Together Swimmingly!
Many kinds of fish and shellfish are fairly low in sodium, and when you cook them, you'll want to choose preparations that don't add too much extra salt. If you're using canned ingredients like tomatoes or broth, look for "no salt added" varieties. Swapping out salt for soy sauce can cut sodium by one-third to one-half, but if you want an even greater reduction, stock your pantry with Kikkoman Less Sodium Sauces, like Kikkoman Less Sodium Soy Sauce and Kikkoman Less Sodium Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce.
Cooking method is important too, and seafood lends itself well to lower-fat preparations like broiling, grilling and steaming. It's also versatile enough to pair with just about any ethnic flavor palette, from Asian to Mediterranean and all points in between, so you're not limited to heavy deep-fried or cream- and butter-rich dishes. So lose the fish and chips, and get to know a whole world of healthy, lower sodium seafood!
