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
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!
