Recipe Story

I’ve always been a fan of tuna fish sandwiches. When I started following a keto diet, I had to find a way to enjoy them without the bread.

That’s when I came up with these keto tuna fish wraps, which use mozzarella cheese as the wrap instead of bread or tortillas. This way, I can still have my favorite spicy tuna salad, but with much fewer carbs and more fat and protein. This is one of my favorite meals.

These keto tuna fish wraps are so simple to make, and they taste amazing. The tuna mixture is creamy and flavorful, thanks to the cream cheese, olive oil, and cayenne pepper.

You can also add some chopped spring onions for some extra crunch and freshness. The mozzarella cheese melts and crisps up in the pan, creating a delicious and sturdy wrap that holds the tuna mixture well.

These keto tuna fish wraps are one of my go-to lunches, and I often make them ahead of time and store them in the fridge or freezer. They are great for busy days when I need a filling and tasty meal that is also keto-friendly and gluten-free.

Choice of cheese for Keto Tuna Fish Wraps

I have found that grated mozzarella cheese is the best choice.

Cheddar cheese melts and leaves a lot of oil on the surface of the wrap. It is very soft and hard to flip and shape into a wrap. Plus, it gets very hard when it cools down. It can also be too salty.

I have tried it with fresh mozzarella cheese (in water). It was too soft and it turned into a liquid in the pan instead of forming a wrap base.

Keto Tuna Fish Wraps Filling

Keto Tuna Fish Wraps Filling I’m using a simple mix of canned tuna fish and cream cheese in this recipe. The spring onions/scallions and the cayenne pepper are my personal choice.

I like a little bit of heat with the tuna fish. You can replace it with paprika or any other spice you like.

You can use any kind of filling with this mozzarella cheese wrap. I’ve done it with pepperoni and peppers, for example.

It tastes amazing. It’s like a simple pizza base. You can add any ingredients you like and create different wraps every time.

Instructions

Here are the steps to make these keto tuna fish wraps:

In a medium mixing bowl, mix the tuna fish, olive oil, cream cheese, salt, and cayenne pepper until well combined. Stir in the spring onions if using.

Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle half of the mozzarella cheese evenly over the skillet, leaving some space between the cheese piles.

Tip: If your pan is too hot, it will burn the bottom of the wrap. If it is too cold, it will take longer to cook. It is always better to start with a cooler frying pan than too hot. If your pan is non-stick, you will be perfectly ok to just place the mozzarella cheese. If it is not non-stick, you can spray a little bit of olive oil first and then place the mozzarella cheese.

Cook for about 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and lightly browned on the bottom.

Spoon half of the tuna mixture over one half of the cheese in the skillet. Carefully fold the other half of the cheese over the tuna mixture, like a pancake.

Cook for another 5 minutes, flipping once, until the cheese is crisp and golden on both sides.

Transfer the tuna wrap to a cutting board and cut into four pieces. Repeat with the remaining cheese and tuna mixture to make another wrap.

Enjoy your keto tuna fish wraps hot or cold, or store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Q: How can I make these keto tuna fish wraps more fun and creative?

A: You can try different ways of making and serving these keto tuna fish wraps, such as:
