It’s a keto-friendly version of your favorite California rolls. And you can make it easy at home. 

We will use ingredients traditional for this Japanese dish, such as salmon, cream cheese, cucumber, avocado, and nori.

For the sauce we make keto-friendly sushi dip with coconut aminos, fresh ginger, and lemon juice. 

You can also use any seafood or white fish instead of salmon. This will diversify the taste of your rolls.

The highest carb ingredient is cream cheese with 1.4g net carbs per serving (cheese itself).

Carefully roll-on and gentle press. You can also lightly dampen the free edge of the nori sheet so that the roll curls more tightly.
