If you have problems with sodium, as I do ,leave out the salt or look for other ways to cut it from caned goods . I go fresh if at all possible .

Very Good 4.5/5

This is my all time favorite dish from Peru!I skipped the time consuming step of having to cook the shrimp in lemon/lime juice and used already cooked shrimp- but you won't be able to taste the difference- and wil love the fact you can make this in minutes rather than hours. Also don't let the fat content alarm you- it's all from olive oil so you get a good dose of healthy omega 3! Because this is a cold recipe- you can also substitute flaxseed or any

Mexican baked fish
Very Good 4.6/5

A baked fish dish. You get to choose the heat. Use mild salsa for a little heat and extra hot salsa for lots of heat! Serve with rice, black beans, warm tortillas and lime Margaritas for a festive meal!"

Chicken Enchiladas
Very Good 4.8/5
(5 ratings)

Made this with leftovers from the "crockpot sticky chicken"
This is one of my family's favorite recipes. It's high in sodium though! Hopefully I can get my hands on some low sodium enchilada sauce soon and re-do this.

This is great for leftover turkey also!
