Really light and fresh taste. Ate it without putting it in the lettuce, as the omelette breakfast had filled us up.

I really enjoyed this.
Really good idea for a light, but filling lunch!

loved this. i just chopped the the gem lettuce up and mixed it in to eat as a salad instead of fiddling to wrap it all up

Really tasty and zesty - although I'm on day 2 of the Summer diet plan and have to admit, I'm starting to miss salt! Also, the name of the dish mentions sweetcorn, but there's none in the recipe. I added some anyway as I'd already opened the tin by the time I noticed.

Was delicious but the recipe name says sweet corn and it's not included in the ingredient list?
