Pita Wraps are easy to make with the choice of your fillings. You can make it healthy by adding lots of crunchy vegetables and proteins.
Here I am bringing together the Asian flavors to create a perfect fusion of the Mediterranean wrap.
When the Officer husband is away on duty, I prefer a quick fix for my lunch and dinner.
I had some fish fillets lying in the refrigerator and thought of making my version of a Chilli Fish.
When wrapped with a Pita Bread or rather made pockets out of it, it resulted in a delicious dish that I absolutely fell in love with. I couldn't wait for my husband to get back so that I could share these with him. And Man, was I right!
He savored the wraps and wanted me to make more.
Today as I type this post, you should know that we just gobbled three of these. Buuurrp!
The process of making this dish cannot be any easier. You boil the fish fillets in salted water until just cooked. The onions and tomato are stir-fried with sauces and the shredded fish is added. To assemble the Pita Wrap, you place a lettuce or cabbage leaf, top with the Chilli Fish. You can also finish off with Mayo. And... it's done!

Hi...was trying to contact you..was in vain...
Have one query regarding our above receipie....how did u steam the fillets??..I didn't get the 2 point of our receipie..I have bass fish in my fridge.....please help me out in this..
Hey, I checked my phone. I didn't receive any message. Well, I didn't mention anything about steaming. Cook until the fillets are just done- in water adding a little salt.
I love fish tacos and i think i would love this one too. will try this too.
btw beaten coffee is helping me tide by the a2z quite nicely
I really want to try this! My mum and my granddad - from whome I learned to cook - didnt' really know how to cook fish, so I am not very good at it either. But I like fish, so I like to trie different recipes.
Thanks for sharing this.
I haven't done a lot of pita wraps but this recipe looks super easy.
Another interesting read with a great recipe. Never had it before as I don't eat fish. But looks good.
First, such a heartfelt post this is. You should take immense pride in being an army man's wife.
The recipe sounds delicious. Anything with fish is always a hit for me 🙂

It's great there is such a community and support.
Your recipe looks delicious, but unfortunately this is one I will never try - I have a phobia of fish bones so I just can't eat fish, even when I know it has been filleted properly. I miss fish.

Never tried fish with pita. Must do!

Your one pot meal when the man is not there ;))) But as long as it is nutritous enough it sure doesnt matter.
Roshan Radhakrishnan says
always sounds like a healthy option when we add a nice big lettuce leaf around it 🙂
