In 1997, McDonald in Norway has once released a Salmon burger called McLaks for a while. After ten years, the new product utilizing salmon again finally comes in the name of Laksewrap (salmon wrap in Norwegian). The TV commercial plays with clanging of the words “wrap” and “rap”, but I like the design of the poster much better. The design of that laksewraps leap over the sea in the resemblance of live salmons is far more attractive than the real ones in front of me.
Mexican tortilla as the wrap with one piece of deep-fried crispy fish fillet, the spotlight is the salmon bought from Hitra the famous fish-farm in Norway. Inside the wrap, salad and a tiny piece of Mango are covered by honey or wasabi dressing. It is really tasty. Comparing to hamburger, it is lighter and more refreshing, and an extra satisfaction of fullness can be gained comparing to solely salad. What is important is that the price is not expensive at all, only 35 NOK with one drink, around 6 usd, which is just the half-price of the Hamburger set meal.
A sudden thought, if the Norwegian pitta Lompe made of potato replaces Tortilla, the laksewrap will be much more indigenous. The eatting habit of Norwegian, however, is conserative all along. Well, keep using Lompe to wrap the pølse ( a Norwegian word for sausage ) is still fine.
