Take note of the nice amount of potassium (and magnesium) you get from this recipe. Potassium is one mineral we need to be getting more of especially if we're not watching our sodium.
Substitute canned crab or salmon if you like. Those little baby shrimp would probably be good too. If you try salmon let me know how it turns out.
Have a fruit and veggie filled day!
