Start your Japanese keto dinner with a salad.
Japanese wakame seaweed salad is perfect for keto diet, and will satisfy lovers of the traditional cuisine. For those who have not tried it yet, we recommend seasoning the seaweed salad with soy sauce and sesame seeds. Cucumber adds juiciness to the salad.
- 250g – wakame seaweed
- 70g – sesame
- olive oil
- butter (for roasting seeds)
- little cucumber
- 30 – soy sauce
Pour wakame seaweed with warm water in a bowl and leave for about 15-30 minutes.
Melt the butter in a pan and fry the sesame seeds until golden brown.
Cut cucumber into thin semicircles.
Remove the wakame seaweed from the water. You can cut them for convenience. Mix them with cucumber and sesame seeds.
Pour all it with soy sauce and olive oil.
For dressing you can use any other vegetable oil. If the amount of carbs allows add lemon juice or apple vinegar, it can bring interesting flavors to the dish.
Keto sushi – rolls
Homemade sushi can be low carb due to the fact that rice is not used for their preparation. The Japanese keto recipe is simple, so don’t you try this delicacy of Japanese cuisine. In addition, the preparation does not require much time. And you can quickly set the table for a meeting with friends or prepare the perfect Japanese keto “dinner for one”.
For about 40 pieces of rolls:
- 500 g cauliflower
- 200 cream cheese
- 20 g (2 tablespoons) soy sauce or tamari sauce (gluten free)
- 8 nori sheets (about gr)
- 150 g of raw or smoked salmon
- 70 g (1/2 PC) avocado
- 70 g of fresh cucumber
- 70 colored pepper
Served the Japanese keto dish with pickled ginger, wasabi, soy sauce.
Of course, you can use other additives for the filling. For example, surimi, shrimp, fish, black sesame.
Wash the cauliflower and dry it. Separate from the stems and cut so finely that it looks like rice.
Then “rice” should be fried in a dry pan, stirring occasionally until it becomes golden and dry.
Mix cabbage with cheese and tamari sauce or soy sauce and place in the refrigerator.
At this time, prepare all the other ingredients.
Wash the vegetables and dry them. Peel the avocado and cucumbers. Cut all the vegetables and salmon into narrow strips.
Prepare a bamboo mat, putting food plastic wrap on it.
Lay a sheet of nori on the mat.
Spread the “rice”above, do not forget to leave empty 2 centimeters from the edge, so that the “rice” does not fall out after wrapping. At a distance of about 2-3 cm from the opposite edge, put the filling.
Roll it as tight as you can.
Cut the resulting long roll into equal parts. You get about 5 pieces from 1 wrapped roll and 1 sheet of nori or 40 PCs of 8 sheets.
When it comes to filling, everything is limited only by your imagination and taste preferences. You can even go beyond the usual Japanese cuisine filling – fish, omelet or vegetables. Use mushrooms or chicken.
This Japanese keto dinner can be served with pieces of salmon, chopped avocado, cucumber and colored pepper, and as sauces use mayonnaise, olive or MCT oil.
The perfect end of the meal is a Japanese keto dessert. In the traditional cuisine, of course, there is no such variation of rolls, but in the modern cafe, which serves Japanese cuisine, you are likely to meet such. Why not to diversify your menu with this option? Cooking time and the complexity of the Japanese keto recipe are no more than the previous rolls version.
For 10 PCs:
- 2 eggs
- 20 g coconut milk
- 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 100 g of low-carb berries (e.g. honeysuckle or strawberries)

Thoroughly mix the ingredients in a bowl until smooth.
Grease the pan with oil or butter and pour a little of the mixture.

Wrap the pancake in roll and cut into several portions.
As a filling, you can use anything. It becomes very tasty with peanut butter or caramel.
