When presented with a tortilla, it seems like a challenge to stuff it with as many tasty morsels of meat and vegetables as it will hold, until the juices are dripping out the bottom and down my arm. Now, I like turkey, cheese, and mayo as much as the next sandwich devotee, but let's get real. There is only so much mustard one's gustatory senses can take. Even the Grey Poupon man must have wanted to burst out of the confines of his Bentley once in awhile. When I tasted the sweet and tangy teriyaki sauce from Fusilli with Teriyaki Salmon & Vegetables, I knew that it was meant to live another day.
As I bit into this wrap, my teeth easily cut through the tender tortilla that had been slightly moistened with the teriyaki sauce. Then came the heart of the sandwich. Medium-rare steak, while tender and juicy, also has a certain rip-it-with-your-teeth caveman appeal. Paired with the crunch and slight sweetness of the vegetables and doused in the piquant sauce, the steak seemed to sing a song of happiness.
