Broiled Tilapia Gyros

Cooking Light NOVEMBER 2010

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 filled gyro)

Ingredients

  • Fish:
  • 1 1/2 pounds tilapia fillets
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Cooking spray
  • Tzatziki:
  • 3/4 cup plain 2% reduced-fat Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • Remaining ingredients:
  • 4 (2.75-ounce) Mediterranean-style wheat flatbreads (such as Toufayan)
  • 1/2 cup vertically sliced red onion (about 1/2 small onion)
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled and cut into 12 thin slices
  • 1 medium tomato, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 small English cucumber, thinly sliced (about 1/2 cup)

Preparation

1. Preheat broiler.

2. To prepare fish, brush fish with oil; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Place fish on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 6 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or desired degree of doneness.

3. To prepare tzatziki, combine yogurt and next 5 ingredients (through garlic) in a food processor or blender; pulse until smooth.

4. Spread 2 tablespoons tzatziki in the center of each flatbread. Divide fish evenly among flatbreads. Top each serving with 2 tablespoons onion, 3 avocado slices, 2 tomato slices, and about 6 cucumber slices; fold in half.
