Spicy Tuna and Avocado Cucumber Roll

OMG you all, I found this recipe off another blog that I follow and just had to share it with you all.  I have been trying to follow a new lower carb diet latey and have been trying to get creative with my meals.

I have always been a HUGE sushi fan, but the rice, mayo, and other not to healthy ingredients just don’t fit into my new Keto style of eating.  So on to pinterest I went.  I knew I wanted to find something similar to a spicy tuna roll that didn’t have all the fat content from the mayo.  Low and behold, I found these.

They have all the flavoring of authentic Spicy Tuna rolls, without the fat or carbs.  AMAZING!

Now mine didn’t turn out as pretty as the original post, but let me tell you, my mouth and stomach didn’t care one little bit.  Her recipe called for regular mayo, and I swaped mine out for Olive Oil Mayo, which is just slighty better for you.

These took all of about 10 minutes to make and next time I will probably get myself a better pealer so that I can make my cucubmer slices thinner.  I just used my knife to cut thin slices off, but thinner slices from a pealer would probably make them easier to roll.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cucumber (cut into thin strips)
  • 1 Can of tuna
  • 1 Tbsp mayo (I used olive oil mayo)
  • 2 tsp Sriracha
  • 2 tsp. Garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Avocado, sliced and cut to match the width of the cucumber

I started by adding my canned tuna, mayo, siracha, and garlic powder in a bowl.  I used canned tuna in water, but I bet it would just, if not more, tasty with raw sushi grade tuna, or seared tuna steaks.

Next I cut and laid out my strips of cucumber, then I layed out my tuna on the strips of cucmber.  Each sliced didn’t hold too much tuna mixture because I wanted to make sure they were bite size pieces.

Finally I placed 2 pieces of avocado on top of the tuna mixture and rolled up the cucumber slices.  I ended up using a toothpick to hold the rolls together, but I’m sure there is another way to do that.  Thoughts?

Here are my final rolls, like I said, not the prettiest things, but MAN did they taste good.
