Greek Lamb Wraps & Tzatziki

Thursday, June 24th, 2010


It’s been hot, hot, hot in London town this week, and the warm weather has got me thinking about summer food. Aside maybe from a decent burger on a barbie, for me it’s the Mediterraneans that totally nail ‘al fresco’ eating. Grilled meats, crunchy veg and fresh zingy flavours.

These lamb wraps have all that and more. The taste of the spicy, charred, marinated meat and the tzatziki work really well together, and the wraps mean that the dish is still pretty light. We don’t have a garden, so our griddle pan has to do.

Ingredients (makes 3 large wraps)

For the lamb

400g lamb leg steaks

Handful of fresh oregano leaves, chopped

2 cloves of garlic, chopped

1 teaspoon dried chilli flakes

Juice of one lemon

50ml extra virgin olive oil

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

Pinch of salt

Freshly ground black pepper to taste

For the tzatziki

200g 0% fat Greek yoghurt

1/4 cucumber, sliced and diced

Handful of mint leaves, chopped
