Cucumber Wrapped Cream Cheese Philly Roll

After creating our Keto Bacon Wrapped Cream Cheese California Rolls, I became curious on what other types of sushi we’d be able to make low-carb/keto while tasting good!

Well, let me tell you that it definitely took some experimenting but finally came up with this Cucumber Wrapped Cream Cheese Philly Roll!

The idea first started out with using some smoked salmon wrapped in bacon to create a Philly Roll and well….it didn’t turn out well!

While it sounded good in theory, the flavors of the smoked salmon and bacon clashed and was just a mess, so I scrapped the entire thing and went back to the drawing board!

So after some researching and experimenting, I landed on using cucumbers to wrap the salmon resulting in this Cucumber Wrapped Cream Cheese Philly Roll!

The cucumbers provided the crunchy texture I was looking for where as the cream cheese added the flavors to pair with the salmon.

We used both sashimi salmon and smoked salmon for this dish and they both turned out well!  I prefer the sashimi salmon as it tastes more like sushi, but if you’re a fan of smoked salmon, give that version a try!

And while the idea of making your own ‘sushi’, especially one that’s low-carb/keto might sound intimidating, it’s actually really easy!

If you have a slicer handy, it will make this a breeze.  You still can make it work using a knife, but you’ll need to be meticulous when cutting the cucumber slices.

After getting the cucumbers sliced, it’s just a matter of assembling the cucumber pieces, cream cheese, salmon and rolling them up!

If you’re using smoked salmon, enjoy as is but if you’re like me and enjoying it with some sashimi grade salmon, it tastes better when lightly dipped in soy sauce.

5) Use the other cucumber and a Slicer to make 12 thinly sliced cucumbers long ways.  If you don’t have a Slicer, you can also use a vegetable peeler or knife, but the slices have to be thin enough to wrap without breaking.

6) Lightly sprinkle Toasted 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, followed by a piece of cream cheese and a 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.
