What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 cups plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 cucumber, peeled, seeded, and chunked
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds tilapia or catfish, cut into 1/2-inch strips
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons sliced Kalamata olives
  • 3 (6-inch) pitas, cut in half
  • 2 cups sliced romaine lettuce
  • 1 large tomato, chopped

What to Do

  1. In a food processor or blender, lightly pulse yogurt, cucumber, dill, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper, leaving mixture chunky. Refrigerate tzatziki sauce until ready to use.
     
  2. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Sprinkle fish with remaining salt, pepper, and the oregano. Add fish to skillet, and cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until it flakes easily with a fork. Pour remaining lemon juice over fish about 2 minutes before the end of the cooking time; remove from pan and let cool slightly.
     
  3. Open each pita pocket and, distributing evenly, fill with lettuce, tomato, and fish. Top with tzatziki sauce and olives; serve immediately.

All-American Fish-in-Foil

If you want a lemony-herb fish dish, that's packed with flavor and easy to make, then you've got to try our All-American Fish-in-Foil. We used catfish, because it's firm enough to stay together and delicate enough to wrap it in foil. It's a perfectly seasoned, easy-as-can be dinner that you're going to love to share with family and friends.
