Keto Smoked Salmon Sushi

There’s no need to miss out on delicious Japanese style food on a ketogenic or low-carb diet. It just needs a little bit of creativity to find tasty alternatives to rice. Here I’ve replaced the rice layer in a sushi roll with a layer of thin omelette which in my opinion makes it even tastier than the original! If you haven’t made sushi rolls before, it’s easier than you might think but gives a really impressive looking result. The only equipment you need is a simple bamboo mat like this for rolling up. I’ve gone for a wasabi mayo dip here instead of the traditional soy sauce, for added healthy fats and a kick of heat.

Servings: 2

Cut the carbs in a traditional sushi roll by replacing the rice with omelette.


  • 1 Nori sheet
  • 2 eggs
  • 100g Smoked Salmon
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 2 inch piece of cucumber, cut into batons
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Wasabi Paste
    1. Gently beat together the eggs and cook in a frying pan to make a flat omelette. When cool, slice the omelette into large pieces and arrange over the nori sheet leaving 1cm uncovered at the top. (See photo 1 below)
    2. Arrange the smoked salmon over the omelette. Next place a line of avocado and cucumber across the middle. (See photo 2 below)
    3. Use a bamboo mat to roll up the sushi. Wet the uncovered strip of nori with a damp finger and use it to stick the roll together. Wrap the whole roll tightly in clingfilm and leave it in the refrigerator to firm up for at least 1h.
    4. Make the wasabi mayo dip by simply stirring together the wasabi past and mayonnaise. If you are not used to wasabi, start with a small amount and keep adding to get the desired level of heat!
    5. When ready to serve, unwrap the sushi roll and slice into approximately 10 slices with a sharp knife. Serve with the wasabi mayo dip on the side.
