Can a dish prepared with too much salt be overcome without changing the water or ingredient content? Or least in a drastic way.

    You should also specify what kind of dish. A soup may be mitigated adding cream, but a steak will be more difficult :)

a stew or soup can be fixed by adding a halved potato into it and simmering for as long as it takes for the potato to cook. Carefully remove the potato with a slotted spoon afterwards.

  • This works very well in a lot of different dishes. Anything that is fluid enough to cook the potato. Commented Dec 17, 2018 at 3:37
