Greek Lamb Souvlaki Pitas

We are finally starting to think about travelling overseas once again! And with the sun coming out this week, and the weather warming, it makes me think of one place I want to go...Greece! And my guilty pleasure when I’m in Greece is souvlaki!

Souvlaki is like a Greek version of doner kebabs. It’s basically meat cooked on a skewer and is kind of like the Greek version of fast food. It’s usually served on pita bread, spread with tzatziki, sliced tomatoes, onions and occasionally fries or fried halloumi. The pita is wrapped and ready to go! 

It’s a super easy option for mid-week dinners, especially with the succulent lamb souvlaki skewers from your parcels.

Ingredients: Serves 4

  • Greek pita x 4 - get this from European grocery stores, or Turkish pita will do.
  • 1 garlic clove - minced
  • Lamb souvlaki skewers x 8
  • Tzatziki - I buy this from the dips section of the grocery store
  • 2 large tomatoes sliced thinly
  • 1 red onion sliced very thinly
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley

Optional toppings:

  • Hot chips
  • Feta

Method:

  1. Preheat a large grill or barbecue plate over medium-high heat.
  2. Cook lamb skewers, turning occasionally, for 8 minutes until browned on all sides. Cover in foil and set aside.
  3. Brush pita bread with good quality olive oil and cook on the grill for 2 minutes each side or until charred. 
  4. Serve skewers on warm pita bread, and top with tomatoes, onion, parsley and tzatziki. Add your optional toppings of hot chips and feta if desired (BTW this adds so much extra yum!). Enjoy!
