Mackerel Wrap

I love wraps,  like shawarma, burritos,  specially those red meats and onions with mayonnaise wrapped in bread - pita, chapatti whatever high calorie wrapping breads available in the supermarket.

I am currently on a special diet and it requires a low calorie and low fat consumption only.  And since I have been craving for shawarma since yesterday or anything wrapped.  I usually have these cravings if I am lazy to cook or to think of what to cook :D  So, being on a special diet and, well, I am lazy to think of anything, I decided to be more creative, be ingenious.  Albeit this is not aSharon’s original “food wrapping” method, somebody before me had already though of this kind too.

Anyway, I have a head lettuce leaves and atlantic mackerel fillet at home, so I made used of that.  The thing is, what about the sauce?  I was tempted to use mayonnaise, something I thought I can’t eat wraps or sandwiches without, but I had proven myself wrong.  I made use of the mang tomas sarsa and it was really delicious.

Here’s my mackerel wrap:

 

Ingredients:

Mackerel Fillet - I fillet around 100 g.

Lettuce leaves, shredded - 4 pcs.

White Onion, julienned - 1 small bulb
