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 ketogenic spicy tuna roll recipe 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.

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 Sriracha Sauceketogenic spicy tuna roll recipe. 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 Matketogenic spicy tuna roll recipe to make these rolls, you’ll be amazed at how well they work!

Ketogenic Spicy Tuna Rolls

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

  1. Place Nori sheet on a sushi mat with the rough non shiny side facing up.
  2. 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.
  3. Take a very sharp knife and slice the roll into approximately 6 pieces.
  4. Squirt the top of each roll with a dab of Sriarchi sauce.

Enjoy, these are really good!

  1. This isn’t Keto.
    Siracha has sugar in it. It’s one of the first Ingredients.
    Most Mayo has sugar in it as well. There are very few brands that don’t.
    If you replace siracha with chili garlic sauce and make sure you use Dukes or one of the other 3ish mayo’s that don’t have sugar you can remove the added sugar, but the recipe, as it is has added sugar in 2 of the main components.

    1. Here is how I see it. Keto is not a food group, it is a metabolic state. Any food can be ‘keto’, yes even sugar. If you are following Clean Keto, then sure, this will be one of those foods that you would likely avoid. Me, I can use Sriacha and store bought mayo and have it fit well within my macros and feel quite comfortable with my choice to do that. But I do applaud you for keeping your Keto clean!

  2. 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!

  3. 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)

    1. 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!

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

  4. 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.

    1. 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.

  5. 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.

      1. I like to make sushi into a rice bowl so using cauliflower rice would be easy and yummy. I cut the nori into thin strips and mix in.

    1. I think you could try any other canned or shredded meat. I think shredded/pulled chicken or pork would be good. You could flavor them in an Asian style.
