Keto Japanese Inspired Tuna Sandwich


We’re fortunate enough to be able to work from home, so we don’t have to face the struggles of trying to keep it low carb/keto in the corporate office!  But I definitely can relate as I worked in an office setting for a very long time before starting LCA!

I remember the struggle of always having to go to the same places and eating the same meals because, let’s face it, we live in a day and age where processed carbs are everywhere and often the main focus of the menus!

So our Keto Japanese Inspired Tuna Sandwich is for all you working folks that need a quick, easy, and low carb/keto friendly recipe you can eat during your busy work day! 

This dish is something we often eat as well in between our cooking sessions and is essentially a creamy crispy tuna sandwich that you can make in under 10 minutes with a little bit of Asian flair added in! 

You can also enjoy this as a chip and dip type meal, but the best part is the fact that you can make it in large batches and store them in the fridge!  We always make sure to have some in our fridge, along with our garlic onion dip, for those midnight snack gatherings after our kids go to sleep!

This dish is low carb/keto friendly at ~6g per serving/sandwich and makes for a perfect lunch to bring to work with you! 

For this recipe, the only special ingredients you would need is Kewpie Mayo and Soy Sauce, which you can pick up on Amazon or a local Asian supermarket.  You can use American mayo like Hellman’s or Best Foods, however the recipe will be less creamy.   We also highly recommend using a silicone baking mat.

Now, let’s get started!
