Keto Salmon Sushi Rolls

Sushi is the most recognized dish of Japanese cuisine and is available in almost every city you visit. If you have been missing sushi, this low carb sushi recipe is for you.

Sushi is normally prepared with vinegared rice and combined with seafood and vegetables.

For our keto version, we use riced cauliflower as a substitute for regular rice. We will mix riced cauliflower with vinegar and cream cheese to mimic the regular vinegared rice consistency.

For filling, we will have cucumber, avocado and smoked salmon. You can use fresh salmon or your own choice of seafood.

For the sauce, we prepare our sushi dip with low carb soy sauce, ginger and lemon juice. If you follow strict keto, you might want to replace soy sauce with Coconut Aminos.
