We’re making sushi keto style with these salmon sushi pinwheels that are an awesome snack, appetizer, party food, or light meal!

To skip the rice and seaweed wrapper we’re going straight for the healthy smoked salmon as the wrapper, how cool is that?!

You’ll need just a bit of lead time since these need to be chilled for an hour before slicing to make sure that they retain their shape but other than that the hands-on time is minimal.

Ingredients (makes 2 servings)

  • 225 g smoked salmon (8 oz)
  • 115 g cream cheese (4 oz)
  • 1/4 medium cucumber, julienned (50 g/ 1.8 oz)
  • 1/2 large avocado, sliced (100 g/ 3.5 oz)
  • 1 tbsp sugar-free furikake or sesame seeds or dried seaweed flakes
  • Optional: serve with coconut aminos or tamari sauce

Note: Furikake is a Japanese seasoning mix. Typically it contains a mixture of sesame seeds, dried fish, finely chopped seaweed and salt but it may also contain sugar and MSGs. If you can't find suitable low-carb option, simply use half sesame seeds and half dried seaweed such as nori, kelp, dulse or wakame flakes.
