Directions

  1. In a small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, Italian dressing, feta cheese and anchovies. Season with cayenne pepper, black pepper and salt. Mix until well blended, then set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place the 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, 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. Warm pita breads in the toaster or in the microwave to soften. Open from the cut side to make pockets. Fill pita bread halves with lettuce, onion, and tilapia fillets, then spoon in some of the feta cheese sauce. Serve and enjoy!

In a word...yum! I switched the recipe up just a little bit by lightly breading the tilapia with homemade bread crumbs for a nice crunch. I served the fish "soft taco" style in a flour tortilla and left the anchovies out of the sauce. This meal was a real hit at my house and my visiting friend raved too.

Knowing how bland it can be, I sprinkled the tilapia with lemon pepper and let it sit in the fridge for a few hours. Husband enjoyed them, and particularly loved the feta sauce (he doesn't like anchovies, so I didn't tell him they were in it). This was a great way to get some fish into our diet. Thanks!

This was awesome! I did substitute diced cucumber for the lettuce, and it was so good that way, I can't imagine it being quite as good without. Still, what a great recipe, I am so glad to find a new way that we enjoy serving tilapia. I used naan instead of pitas and served it like tacos. I also substituted some anchovy paste for the actual anchovy fillets. I used the Italian salad dressing mix recipe from this site to make the dressing, which was really good. Thanks for the great recipe!
