The Keto Roll

40 minutes
Calories 140kcal


  • 114 grams blue crabs (cooked)
  • 40 grams olive oil mayonnaise (cooked)
  • 5 grams sesame oil
  • 5 grams Cholula Hot Sauce
  • 50 grams avocado
  • 50 grams Philadelphia Cream Cheese (or waitrose)
  • 2 sheets roasted seaweed
  • rice vinegar
  • 10 grams soy sauce (cooked)
  • 1 gram wasabi
  • crab meat
  • blue crabs


  • Start with your cooked blue crab.
  • I buy Ocean Isle Premium Claw Crab Meat from Morrison's which is pre-cooked and very convenient.
  • Any cooked crab will do, so use what works for you!
  • Add the mayo, sesame oil, and cholula hot sauce.
  • Cholula hot sauce is an authentic Mexican brand of hot sauce.
  • I was shocked and pleased to find it in a UK supermarket.
  • Weigh your avocado and cream cheese.
  • Divide them in half, along with your spicy crab salad, since you are making 2 rolls.
  • Take one sheet of nori.
  • Brush on rice vinegar to moisten the nori.
  • This will make it easier to seal and cut later.
  • Make sure you do not use seasoned rice vinegar, this has added sugar.
  • Rice vinegar is similar to wine vinegars, but slightly less acidic.
  • Since you are using a small amount of something very low-carb, I considered it negligible in the calculations.
  • Spread your crab salad along the length of the nori down the center.
  • Place half inch thick strips of avocado and cream cheese down the center also.
  • Roll up your sheet of nori, sealing with more brushed on vinegar if needed.
  • I do this without bamboo sushi rolling mats, so it can be done.
  • It's not particularly easy though! Don't over work the roll.
  • It is very soft and moist from the crab salad and will tear easily.
  • Repeat with 2nd sheet of nori.
  • Slice into inch thick slices.
  • In a small dish, put 1 g wasabi and 10 g soy sauce.
  • My soy sauce has 3.2 g of carbs per 100g.
  • If yours is more carb-y, try watering it down with a little water - it may just be stronger.
  • Or you can also use less soy sauce.
  • The roll does not absorb much when dipped, and invariably there is some left behind in the dish - so don't stress!
