One of my go-to easy meals to eat is my Japanese Spicy Tuna Cucumber Roll because it’s low-carb. keto-friendly and is very similar to make. Not only are there only 4 ingredients to make this recipe, but you can make this dish relatively quickly. I love the fact that this savory dish has such a delicious cooling crunch from the cucumber, yet has a warm spicy flavor from the sriracha sauce. When it comes to our tastebuds, it’s a fun adventure when your mouth can taste different textures and flavors.
Just remember, you’ll want to use regular thick 6″- 8″ cucumber to make this Japanese Spicy Tuna Cucumber Roll. The reason is that English cucumbers also known as house cucumbers are long and very narrow. Persian and Japanese cucumbers are relatively short and thin. Because those cucumbers have slimmer in diameter, it will be harder to produce longer ribbon-like pieces to wrap your sushi with. And yes, we’re still talking about this vegetable, so don’t be took cheeky thinking otherwise.
In addition to this Japanese Spicy Tuna Cucumber Roll recipe, you may want to also try making my other refreshing Japanese-inspired sushi rolls like my Japanese Yellowtail and Cilantro Cucumber Roll and Japanese Salmon and Cream Cheese Philly Cucumber Roll. And if you love cucumbers, you will want to try my Easy Chinese Cucumber Salad Side Dish. It’s refreshing and light with a slight kick of heat if you include the chili flakes.
