Tilapia Pitas


***Check out my new blog for better pics of this delicious dinner! http://www.kayescupboard.com/tilapia-pitas/

A great way to get more fish in your diet-and it comes together really quickly! Our feta cheese got lost somewhere between the store and the fridge, so we just used shredded cheddar- not as fancy, but still good! I served this with cantelope and watermelon- so good!!

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup Italian salad dressing
1/2 cup feta cheese
2 anchovy fillets, drained (we did NOT add this ingredient, but you can do whatever floats your boat)
pinch cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp pepper
pinch salt
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 lb Tilapia fillets
1/4 tsp lemon pepper
salt and cayenne to taste
4 cups lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces
1 small red onion, diced (optional- we thought it overpowered the other tastes)
6 pita breads, cut in half

1. In a small bowl, stir together the mayo, dressing, feta cheese, and anchovies (should you choose to use them...). Season with cayenne, pepper, and salt. Mix until well blended; set aside.
2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place tilapia fillets in the skillet, and season with lemon pepper, salt and cayenne. Fry until browned on each side, and fish flakes easily with a fork, about 5-7 minutes.
3. Warm pita bread in the microwave to soften. Fill pita bread halves with lettuce, onion, and tilpia, then spoon some of the feta cheese sauce.
