Cream Cheese Philly Roll with Cucumber Wraps


Jump to Recipe

After creating our Keto Bacon Wrapped California Rolls, I became curious about what other types of fusion sushi would work well with a bacon wrap.  So I tried a Philly roll with smoked salmon and well….it didn’t turn out well!  The flavors of smoked salmon and bacon clashed and was just a mess, so I scrapped that but was still determined to make a keto version of a Philly roll.  After more researching and experimenting, I landed on using cucumber wraps with sashimi salmon or smoked salmon.  I prefer the sushi salmon version as it tastes more like sushi, but if you are a fan of smoked salmon, you will enjoy that version as well!

This dish as pictured is keto friendly at ~0.1g per piece, so get your sushi cravings on!  This recipe will differ quite a bit depending on the use of smoked salmon or sushi salmon.  The sushi salmon will offer more of a fatty tasting profile paired with the soy sauce whereas smoke salmon will have more of a smokey salmon finish.

For this recipe, you will need only need Kewpie mayo and toasted sesame seeds as your unique ingredients, which can be purchased on Amazon or local and Asian supermarkets.  Also, a slicer kit will be extremely useful for this recipe.

Now, let’s get started!

Prepping Time 10M

Total Time 10M

Net Carb/Piece ~0.1g

Servings 12 Pieces

Ingredients

Directions

1) Gather all the ingredients.

2) Cut cream cheese into 1/2 x 1 inch and set aside.  You will need a total of 12 pieces.

3) Cut 1 cucumber into 1/2 x 1 inch pieces and set aside (optional – you can peel the skin off with a peeler).  You can do this by cutting cucumber in half longways and then cutting half again long ways.  Then cut into 1 inch lengths.   You will need a total of 12 pieces.

4) Cut salmon into 1/2 x 1/2 cubes and set aside.  You will need a total of 12 pieces.

5) Use other cucumber and a slicer to make 12 thinly sliced cucumbers long ways.  If you do not have a slicer, you can also use a vegetable peeler or knife, but the slices do have to be very thin.

6) Lightly sprinkle sesame seeds onto one side of the cucumbers and then flip the cucumber over to the other side.

7) Place a piece of salmon and cucumber in the middle of the sliced cucumber.  Then place the piece of cream cheese on top and about 1/2 tsp light squeeze of Kewpie mayo.

8) Take the thicker end of the sliced cucumber 1st and fold over, then fold the other end over to form a roll.  Serve with soy sauce if you are using sushi grade salmon.  Smoked salmon has enough flavor without soy sauce, so it would be optional.
