Following a ketogenic diet doesn't mean eating bacon, cheese and eggs all the time. If you like sushi, you don't have to be limited to eating only sashimi - these hand rolls are perfect for a keto diet. I used cauliflower instead of rice which is a great alternative I've been using to make all sorts of sushi wraps and rolls. The key ingredient is mayonnaise that makes the cauli-rice sticky and takes this meal a step closer to regular sushi.

If you're not a fan of seafood, you can try my Curried Chicken Hand Rolls or simply use the chicken filling instead of prawns and avocado in this recipe.

Ingredients (makes 4 hand rolls)

Prawn Filling:
Hand Rolls:


  1. Place the prawns (or shrimps) in a bowl and add the Sriracha sauce ... Low-Carb Spicy Prawn Hand Rolls
  2. ... and the mayonnaise. Season with salt, mix and set aside. I used shrimps which are smaller than prawns but you can use either. Low-Carb Spicy Prawn Hand Rolls
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the sticky cauli-rice. Cut the cauliflower into smaller florets and make the "cauli-rice" using a grater or a food processor with a grating blade (I use this one from Kenwood). Place the cauli-rice into a large hot pan greased with ghee and cook for 7-8 minutes over a medium heat. Season with salt and stir frequently to ensure even cooking. Low-Carb Spicy Prawn Hand Rolls
  4. Place the cooked cauliflower in a bowl and let it cool down to room temperature. Then, add the vinegar and mayonnaise (or cream cheese) and mix until well combined. The end result should be sticky so the nori sheets can hold it without spilling. Low-Carb Spicy Prawn Hand Rolls
  5. Assemble the rolls. Top each nori sheet with a quarter of the cauliflower rice mixture, spicy prawns, ... Low-Carb Spicy Prawn Hand Rolls

Eat immediately or store in the fridge for up to 3 days.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

I like these better minus the "rice" and add cucumber.  Maybe some thin-sliced carrot.  Also, add in some Asian chives.  Mmmmmm....

These were absolutely delicious! I can't believe it wasn't rice inside. Thanks for the best keto blog 😊

Thank you Kelly!

I've tried the other two wraps using nori from your app and they are delicious 😊 This is a must try. Thanks!
