MERCADONA has set social media alight with its latest food offering.
It comes after the supermarket giant announced this week that it is expanding its gluten-free stock to include a very popular item.
The Valencia-based company now has more than 1,530 products that are completely free of gluten – the protein that naturally occurs in wheat and other grains and which triggers celiac disease.
Now, added to that list is the supermarket’s pre-prepared sushi and Salmon Poke.
Salmon Poke is a combination of sushi rice with various vegetables and fish, in this case salmon.
It is accompanied with a ponzu sauce – a mixture of citrus and soy sauce.
X (formerly Twitter) users were delighted by the announcement.
“Finally!” one wrote, while another added, “I’m going to Mercadona right now!”
One said: “They have done what they should have done a long time ago!”
