Can they have oil? You could slow poach fish in olive oil. http://www.food52.com/recipes...
and just use herbs and lots of lemon as seasoning.

You could also make a simple roast chicken. Just leave off the salt, and use lots of fresh herbs instead.

With chicken or veggies lemon is a nice alternative to salt it adds the bit if zing that is often missing from dishes where the salt is simply omitted.try a bit of zest as well as juice.I also favor the fresh leafy herbs
