  • 6 oz lump crab meat alternatively, you can use tuna
  • 2 teaspoons miso paste preferably from Trader Joe’s for convenience
  • ½ tablespoon coconut aminos
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1-2 tablespoons kewpie mayo adjust based on your preference for creaminess
  • A sprinkle of toasted and black sesame seeds for garnish
  • Seaweed sheets or seaweed snacks for rolling
  • A few slices of avocado
  • A dab of wasabi optional


  • Prepare the Crab Mixture: Begin by draining the crab meat thoroughly to remove any excess moisture. This ensures your hand rolls are not soggy. Transfer the crab meat to a mixing bowl.
  • Mix the Ingredients: Add miso paste, coconut aminos, toasted sesame oil, and cupe mayo to the bowl. Mix these ingredients until well combined. The miso and coconut aminos bring a burst of umami and a slight sweetness that complements the crab perfectly.
  • Assemble the Rolls: Lay out your seaweed sheets on a flat surface. Place a couple of slices of avocado on each sheet, then spoon the crab mixture over the avocado. If you like a bit of a kick, add a small dab of wasabi on top of the crab mixture.
  • Roll and Serve: Carefully roll the seaweed sheets to enclose the filling. For ease of eating, cut each roll in half. The sesame seeds can be sprinkled on top for an added crunch and visual appeal.


Variations: Feel free to add rice or cauliflower rice if you’re not strictly avoiding carbs. The recipe is versatile!
Storage: These hand rolls are best enjoyed fresh but can be stored in the refrigerator for a day if needed.
