Easy Keto 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!
Not only that, I have always been aware that seaweed has some amazing health benefits. You can read about The 7 Benefits of Seaweed here.
Can you eat sushi on Keto?
Well, you have to be really careful.
I’ve eaten Sashimi and edamame in restaurants.
Even if you are dirty keto, sushi is an issue because first of all, there’s the rice. And then there’s the sugar in the sauce they use in the rice. And then there’s all the sauces that go onto most rolls.
If you make these tuna rolls or my California Rolls recipe, I think you might just satisfy your sushi cravings!
The other day I had eaten a tuna salad recipe that I got from a site called KetoFlu and it reminded me of a spicy tuna roll because he used that spicy Srirachi sauce. So my Keto 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.
And all that said, if you are one of those people who is squeamish about eating raw fish, hello! These are fantastic, in my honest opinion!
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!
Ingredients needed for the Tuna Rolls
Ok let’s get rolling on this low carb way of making tuna rolls!
- 1 can tuna
- 2 Nori Sheets
- 2 tbsp mayonnaise
- 2 tbsp chopped cilantro (unless you hate cilantro)
- 1 celery stalk, chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
- Srirachi sauce
- Mix tuna, mayonnaise, celery and cilantro in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper
- Place Nori sheet on a sushi mat with the rough non shiny side facing up
- Spread half the 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
- Repeat with second nori sheet and the rest of the tuna mixture.
- Allow to sit for a few minutes so the nori sheet absorbs some moisture
- Take a very sharp knife and slice the roll into approximately 6 pieces.Squirt the top of each roll with a dab of Srirachi sauce.
- Serve immediately with sugar free picked ginger on the side.
