If you’re new to the keto diet, you might be thinking that sushi is off-limits because of all the rice. Think again. These Keto Sushi Rolls require no rice and no-cook time!
Can You Eat Sushi on Keto?
Contrary to popular belief you absolutely can eat sushi on keto. The three main carb concerns of keto rolls are carb filled rice, fried batter (like a tempura roll), and sugary sauces. There are plenty of keto-friendly sushi options that are still flavorful and dynamic.
Using cream cheese, spicy flavors, fish, crab, and other seafood combos, and low carb cauliflower rice, you can order or create countless delicious keto sushi options. Our recipe here is just one idea! The beauty of keto sushi is that once you understand the principles, you can mix and match and create your own delicious Japanese meals.
What Sushi Is Good for Keto?
There are plenty of keto-friendly sushi options, especially if you are cooking at home. Most rolls can simply have the rice replaced with easy-to-make cauliflower rice and bam, keto sushi. Remember the three points of danger for most rolls: rice, fried batter, and sweet sauce. Make your sushi at home with spicy sauces, cauliflower rice, and your choice of crab, fish, or other seafood meat. Laver Nori (the seaweed covering) is extremely low carb and typically isn’t a problem for the keto dieter.
Eating Out? How to Order Low Carb Sushi
Many restaurants don’t offer cauliflower rice replacements for their rolls — but that doesn’t mean you can’t eat out with friends. Order sashimi, which is just the meat that goes into their rolls, or negimaki, delicious thinly sliced beef. Add edamame sides and a bowl of delicious miso soup and you can have a great Japanese meal for a great night out.
