Re: Ginger & Garlic King Crab w/String Beans (pic hvy)

In case anyone is interested. Here's the nutritional chart for the whole recipe. Divide this by the number of servings to get actual numbers.

Example: Salt is 100% of daily amt. for the whole dish. But the dish is approximately 3 servings so the actual amt. of salt is 33.3% per serving etc.

The salt was for the vegetarian portion only. The whole dish does not need the salt since the crab is naturally salty on its own. This would lower the sodium amount a little bit too for those concerned with it.
