What are Soy Paper Spicy Tuna Sushi Rolls ?

Homemade spicy tuna is rolled in soy paper and served with a side of wasabi soy sauce. It is a perfect low carb or keto friendly sushi alternative with the same great flavor just minus the sushi rice, seaweed and carbs.

These rolls make for great appetizers or a main course with a side of edamame (soybeans).

What is soybean paper made out of?

Soy paper is made out of compressed soybeans, soybean oil, and soy flour. It’s very similar to rice paper and the taste is very neutral and perfect for using as a sushi wrap.

What’s the difference between soy paper and seaweed and why use it for sushi recipes?

Seaweed is made from mixed seaweed that has been roasted and dried.

Soy paper is made from soy beans that have been processed and dried.

Since this soy paper sushi recipe is a low-carb rice-free sushi, using a seaweed wrap for the spicy tuna mix will make it soggy. So instead, we use soy paper.

Alternatively, some choose to use soy paper over nori for health reasons, allergies or just personal preference.
