Gyros are popular, but why they are not as popular on restaurant menus as hamburgers is a mystery. When you are walking in the city and happen along a street vendor who is whipping these up in his or her tiny food truck, the aroma will draw you in every time.
Yes, gyros are traditionally made with pork, chicken, lamb, or beef, but my recipe for Grilled Tilapia Gyros upends that notion. (The kitchen, as you know, is a wonderful place to experiment. That’s why they call it a “test kitchen”!) The grilled Tilapia and crispy pita bread subtly collide with the cool, zesty Tzatziki sauce, tomatoes and onions, making this the perfect dish to prepare for the kids after school or on the weekend while entertaining friends.
