It has been a while since we last released a sushi recipe, and with the changing of seasons we thought it would be a great time to get back to this.  We actually have a whole series of low-carb/keto sushi recipes planned out, but so far we have only released our Bacon Wrapped California Rolls, Cucumber Philly Rolls, Keto Lobster Rolls, Keto Poor Man’s Sushi, Shrimp Bacon Rolls, and what should have been our Beef Sushi Rolls, but that ended in disaster and instead became our Beef Lettuce Hand Rolls!  So for today, we thought we would share a ‘traditional fusion’ sushi in our Keto Spicy Tuna Rolls.  We say ‘traditional fusion’ because it was one of the first fusion sushi to be created.  Anyway, going back to the recipe itself, spicy tuna is actually really easy to make and can be made at home with some basic ingredients!  So next time you are in the mood for sushi – low-carb/keto style – give this LCA’s favorite sushi recipe a try!

This recipe is low-carb/keto friendly at ~3g of net carbs per 12 pieces.  We would describe the taste of this sushi roll as spicy umami with a touch of sesame and refreshing cucumbers to round out the heat.

For this recipe, the special ingredients you would need to pick up are Soy Paper, Sriracha, Sesame Oil, Kewpie Mayo, Toasted Sesame Seed (optional), Togarashi and sushi/sashimi grade tuna.  You can pick up most of these on Amazon or a local Asian supermarket.  Note – for the tuna, we recommend using Yellowfin Tuna/Ahi for this recipe.  You can use either fresh or frozen/saku blocks but just make sure it does state ‘sushi/sashimi grade’ on the package.  Bluefin Tuna/Hon Maguro is considered the premium tuna and kind of a waste to use for spicy tuna.

Now, let’s get started!
