Healthy Eating: Low-Carb Sushi!

photo 2(9)

I’ve never actually tried to do this before – so it doesn’t look the best, but it tasted pretty good!  I’ve been really craving Sushi Rolls lately, but any of the ones in take-away boxes that I’d seen were made with rice – which neither myself or my husband are eating at the moment!  So I decided to make my own healthy ‘low carb’ version at home!

I took a trip to an Asian supermarket and picked up some Seaweed/Nori.  If you love stir-fries and Asian cuisine – I highly recommend shopping in an Asian food store for essentials such as Sesame Oil, Soy Sauce, Seasonings etc.  It works out much cheaper than the likes of Tesco…I know this, because I bought the ginger and wasabi in Tesco 😉 !  I also picked up a Chinese cabbage – YUM!

Here’s what I used to make the Rolls:

Vegetables (Carrots are optional, but give it a really nice crunch):

  • Carrots (chopped lengthways to equal sizes)
  • Cucumbers (peeled and de-seeded)
  • Spring Onions
  • Avocado Slices

Fish:

  • Smoked Salmon slices
  • Tinned Tuna – mixed with a bit of mayo and finely chopped ‘whites’ of the spring onions!

Seasoning and Sauces (optional, depending on how hardcore your ‘low-carbing’ is):

  • Soy Sauce and Wasabi for dipping
  • Rice Vinegar drizzled on veggies before putting in the rolls
  • Black and White Sesame Seeds

Utensils:

  • Rolling Mat
  • Sharp Heavy Knife

I won’t go into the details of how I actually made the rolls as I am not a Sushi Chef -haha!  But after filling and rolling, I wrapped them in cling film, stuck them in the fridge, and then cut them just before serving!

I’ll definitely be trying this out again, let me know if you do too! Thanks for reading!
