Zatarain's frozen dinners

Are they any good? I've tried the dried mixes for Red Beans and Rice and Gumbo and thought they were pretty good, but way salty.

  1. Our local extreme discount grocery got a lot of these, and the sodium content is really really high.

    1. Very salty. I haven't had one of the frozen meals in over 4 years. I do use the dry boxed jambalaya mix, which is packaged with a low sodium version, which I like much more than the regular version. A quick check of the website shows that other varieties of the boxed products are available as low sodium as well.

      1. Exactly, two words, sodium content. The Dirty Rice is tasty, a bit spicy, but again it's the sodium.
