Keto Sushi Recipe Ingredients

  • 10 oz Frozen Riced Cauliflower
  • 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 4.25 oz canned crab meat, drained
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons Sriracha sauce
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 teaspoons wasabi paste
  • Nori Seaweed Sheets
  • 1/4 cucumber, julienne
  • ½ avocado, sliced
  • 4 oz cream cheese

Keto Sushi Recipe Directions

  • 1
    Prepare the riced cauliflower according to the package instructions. Empty cauliflower into a bowl. Add in rice wine vinegar and sesame oil. Stir to combine. Set aside to cool down a bit. You want the rice to be slightly warm when rolling the sushi. This will help it roll together and seal the ingredients together.
  • 2
    In a separate bowl, combine the crab meat, mayonnaise and sriracha sauce. Mix until combined. Set aside.
  • 3
    To make the wasabi cream, mix the mayonnaise, water and wasabi paste together in a separate bowl and set aside.
  • 4
    To assemble your roll, place a sheet of Nori shiny side down on a bamboo mat. Spread out the cauliflower rice in a thin layer all the way to the side edges of the nori sheet, but leave a small gap on the top and bottom of the sheet to allow for sealing the edges together.

  • 6
    Wet your fingers with water and spread a thin layer of water on the top of the Nori sheet. This will help seal the end of the sushi roll together after you finished rolling.
  • 7
    Start rolling the bottom of the mat ¼ of the way and squeeze to press together, then unroll the mat. Repeat the process until the roll comes together. Squeeze together when done.

Keto Sushi

Unless you’re a fan of sashimi, traditional sushi rolls are not keto approved since they contain rice. To make keto California rolls, or any custom keto sushi roll, we will use cauliflower rice instead. Some keto sushi recipes suggest omitting the rice all together, but I love the texture and flavor the rice provides.

Even though we are using cauliflower rice to build the rolls, it will NOT give off that unpleasant cauliflower taste. In this sushi recipe, we will combine the riced cauliflower with rice vinegar and sesame oil. This gives our keto rice that traditional sushi rice flavor.

What Kind Of Sushi Rolls Can I Make Besides A California Roll?

You can make your own custom sushi rolls. Just remember to use keto friendly ingredients. Make sure to stay away from imitation crab meat. It is loaded with sugar and high in carbs. Use canned crab or cooked crab instead.

Here is a list of ingredients you can use in your sushi:

  • Avocado
  • Cucumber
  • Asparagus
  • Jalapeno
  • Radish
  • Green onion
  • Bell pepper
  • Sprouts
  • Cream cheese
  • Shrimp, cooked
  • Crab, canned or cooked
  • Salmon, sashimi grade or canned
  • Smoked salmon
  • Smoked trout
  • Tuna, sashimi grade
  • Scallops, cooked
  • Sesame seeds
  • Sliced almonds

How To Roll A Sushi Roll Using A Bamboo Rolling Mat

  • Place a sheet of Nori shiny side down in the center of the mat.

  • Spread out your cauliflower rice in a thin layer all the way to the side edges of the nori sheet, but leave a small gap on the top and bottom of the sheet to allow for sealing the edges together.

  • Line your ingredients out in the row towards the bottom of the sheet.

  • Wet your fingers with water and spread a thin layer of water on the top of the Nori sheet. This will help seal the end of the sushi roll together after you finished rolling.

  • Start rolling the bottom of the mat ¼ of the way and squeeze to press the ingredients together,then unroll the mat. Repeat the process until everything is rolled together. Give a final squeeze.

  • Using a sharp knife, cut the roll into 1 inch pieces. To keep the knife from sticking to the sushi roll, dip the blade in water.

How To Roll A Sushi Roll Without A Bamboo Mat

Repeat all the steps above, but use a piece of parchment paper or plastic wrap in place of the rolling mat.
