Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 10 mins
Yield: 4 servings


  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 small garlic clove, finely grated
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup falafel mix
  • 1-1/2 pounds BAP-certified tilapia, cut into 1-inch strips
  • Olive oil spray
  • 4 flat breads
  • 2 cups chopped tomatoes
  • 2 cups chopped cucumbers
  • Dill pickle wedges


  1. Step One

    In a large bowl, combine the yogurt, lemon juice and zest, garlic and salt and pepper. Set aside. 

  2. Step Two

    Preheat the air fryer or oven to 450°F. Place the flour on a plate. Whisk the eggs in a pie plate with a tablespoon of water until well mixed. Put the falafel mix on another plate. Season the tilapia with salt and pepper and dip in the flour, coating on all sides. Dip into egg and then into the falafel mix to coat each strip of fish. Spray fish with oil spray.
