Ketogenic Spicy Tuna Rolls

So today I had that sushi craving.  And ya, I know that Sashimi is very Keto friendly, but I was dreaming of California rolls and Spider Rolls and my very favorite, Spicy Tuna Rolls!

I thought what the heck, I’ll look up how many carbs in a Sushi Nori Seaweed Sheets and lo and behold, 1 g carb and 1 g fibre, making zero net carbs!  I can work with that!

The other day I had eaten a tuna salad recipe that I got from KetoFlu and it reminded me of a spicy tuna roll because he used that spicy Sriracha Sauce.  So my Ketogenic Spicy Tuna Rolls began to take shape!

So just a little time out here because I don’t want any hate mail!  This is not real sushi, and these are not authentic sushi ingredients, this is Keto Sushi folks!  Meaning this is not gourmet food, just a crazy way to make it seem like I ate sushi.  But I think they turned out pretty darn awesome and I will definitely make these again!

You will need a Sushi Mat to make these rolls, you’ll be amazed at how well they work!

Ketogenic Spicy Tuna Rolls

  • 1 Nori sheet
  • 1 can tuna
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
  • Spicy Siriachi sauce
  • 1/4 c avocado

Mix tuna, mayonnaise and cilantro in a bowl.Keto sushi

Place Nori sheet on a sushi mat with the rough non shiny side facing up.

Spread tuna mixture on bottom half of sheet (see picture). Line avocado slices alongside the tuna.  Using the mat, roll the sheet over the tuna until it is rolled into a cylinder.  Apply a little pressure until the roll holds together on it’s own, then release it from the rolling mat.

Take a very sharp knife and slice the roll into approximately 6 pieces.

Squirt the top of each roll with a dab of Siriachi sauce.

Enjoy, these are really good!

I ate the whole thing for dinner and this is how it came out from MyFitnessPal:  Calories 386, Carbs 5, Fat 25, Protein 31, Fiber 4 (1 Net carb depending on how you count your carbs)

While I was making these, I had a whole bunch of ideas for other Ketogenic Sushi rolls, so stay tuned for more sushi-like goodness!

    Wowww these look amazing. I’m going to make them this weekend hopefully and I’m going to add a splash of lime juice to my tuna mixture yum. I’m just discovering your site. Lovvvvvvve it!

  2. Jo Flemings says:

    What about using cauliflower as a rice substitute in this?

  3. msmum1977 says:

    I’m off to buy nori. This looks fantastic! Thinking it could also work with canned crab meat! Yum 🙂

    I started the Keto diet a few weeks ago and it’s going great but I’m struggling a little on the percentages.
    Thanks so much for this excellent website it really helps a lot. The food you
    eat is the food I like to eat so I’ll be making lots of your recipes.(first post)

    • anitabreeze says:

      I think the percentages are something you have to fiddle with until you find one that works for you. Glad you like the food, lots more recipes coming!

  5. Neko! says:

    Heres a great idea!! Try making this with cauliflower rice to get a pseudo-sushi thing going 😀

    • anitabreeze says:

      Yes, I was actually thinking that would work. I was wondering if I should leave the cauliflower rice uncooked. Hmm…

  6. Gabe says:

    Just wanted to say that if there’s no rice, it’s technically “maki” not “sushi”. For something to be called sushi it must contain rice. So these are keto-friendly maki rolls – and delicious ones at that.

    Try cutting long, thin strips of cucumber with a carrot peeler and using that instead of seaweed to form rolls! Yum.

    • KetoWoman says:

      Yes, you are absolutely correct on that. I tend to use the term sushi as a blanket term to cover all things I might find at my favorite sushi bar. See, there I did it again! 🙂 I will try your cucumber idea though, sounds like another good idea.

  7. I love tuna dishes and the presentation on these is amazing. These would look great at any family event.

  8. Margaret says:

    I’m not into sushi but this does look good

  9. Corinne says:

    I love sushi and this recipe looks delicious. For those afraid of trying to roll their own sushi, you could even skip the the sushi wrapper and just serve in lettuce leaves.

  10. Areeba says:

    Looks super yummy! Love love love Sushi!

  11. Jenny says:

    oh those look good 😀 ♥ Tuna. Think my husband would love these as well.

  12. Noor Unnahar says:

    Can’t tell you how yummy they look!

  13. Mel Cole says:

    Love that it has tuna in it! Yum!

  14. patricia says:

    My issue is mayo. I detest it and I won’t eat anything that has it in it. This does look good but without mayo lol

  15. I love sushi and I usually order the crunchy roll. These look delicious!

  16. Sushi lover here! I try and buy them at least once a week. We have a sushi shop at our commissary and they make some amazing ones. I may have to try yours. 🙂

  17. I don’t eat tuna or any seafood because of allergies but my husband does. I know he would love these tuna rolls.

  18. Wow that looks amazing! And sushi is usually pretty complicated but I think I could handle this. I’ve just discovered sriracha (I haven’t always loved spicy) so will have to give this a try!

  19. Melanie S. says:

    I don’t go near anything that even vaguely resembles fish, but their is a sushi place near me that makes a spicy chicken roll, and I love that. 🙂

  20. MELISASource says:

    This looks perfect for after school in my household! ~Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  21. Nicole A. says:

    I have actually never tried Tuna Rolls before.

  22. Melanie says:

    These look great! I really want to try them some day

  23. I’m so impressed – I have never tried making my own sushi!

  24. I never thought to make a tuna roll! this looks fantastic! My husband would love this!

  25. Sarah Bailey says:

    Oh now that looks nice! I’m not a huge fan of sushi but wow I love tuna! x

  26. This looks so good! I loved spicy foods and tuna.

  27. Pam says:

    We actually really like sushi but my husband hates tuna. These look good though so I might be able to trick him into eating them.

  28. Rosey says:

    Pretty sure my sister-in-law would love this recipe, so I’m forwarding it to her.

  29. I have never seen sushi made with canned fish. Guess it is cheaper that way. Looks like it would make a tasty salad without the wrap.

  30. Marika says:

    I’m not much of a tuna person, but this looks so yummie, I might just give it a try.

  31. Cyndie says:

    I do not like sushi but this looks good. Have to try.

  32. I did spicy tuna rolls on my blog not long ago. We made them for family members who love them. I have never tried them with canned tuna, we always use fresh.
