Sodium in Fish & Shellfish

Article by Diet Bites

Salt Water Species

Keep in mind that if the fish or shellfish that you're thinking about putting on your meal plate once lived in the sea, then it's going to have a naturally salty taste. It may not need any additional added.

It's a great rule of thumb to taste your food before introducing the salt shaker to the food - rather than using it while cooking.

That's how I've cooked for years. I'd rather that the food arrive at the table on the bland side rather than mining it with sodium; while Penny may enjoy her fish without any added - Jimmy may prefer a few shakes.

This also allows the people enjoying the meal to doctor their own food to suit their personal taste.

Looking at our nutrition chart below which lists popular fish and shellfish, we see that some of the highest in salt content are those that have been commercially processed - such as the smoked sturgeon, the fried squid, fried croaker and catfish and the fried shrimp.

The two highest on our list are the Alaskan King Crab at 925 milligrams and the smoked whitefish at 875 milligrams.
