Grill or BBQ it, is the best then

Love lentils and bacon with wilted spinach and grilled halloumi

BeachysSandyFlipFlops Sun 10-Jul-16 20:58:23

I slice it, put a bit of olive oil and thyme on it and grill it.

Squeaky cheese competitions smile

You can grill it, put in burgers etc

Fry in a smudge of chilli oil with cashew nuts .

Slice it, grill it, eat it
Make kebabs with peppers, onion ect..
Lovely with green asparagus ( on bbq)

slice it, fry it in a dry pan and eat it all before anyone realises.

I pan fry it till it is golden and crispy and add it to salads....delicious! I think I had this almost every day last week for lunch!

Whoops-smidge !!

This is lovely. You don't have to do the vinaigrette - although it is delicious - but the cooking instructions for the halloumi are the best I've tried.

Grill it and add to cous cous with grilled veg.

It's from Nigella Express; I use fresh sliced peppers and stick it in the oven at 200 degrees for about 20 minutes. then turn the sausages if needed.

Delia also has a halloumi recipes; I think it's fried and then dressed with lime.

Best sliced and barbecued!
Mushrooms topped with grilled slices and homemade salsa
Halloumi burgers instead of cheddar
Steak and halloumi salad
Chicken, veg and halloumi skewers
I think I could go on but all I do is BBQ it!

Fill pittas with grilled halloumi, butternut squash, slices of fat tomatoes and a layer of chilli jam.

NoahVale Sun 10-Jul-16 21:02:05

that linked post looks delicious, and doable

NoahVale Sun 10-Jul-16 21:02:45

the linked Delia one i mean.
this is moving so fast shock

lots of halloumi lovers

Haudyerwheesht Sun 10-Jul-16 21:03:57

I dry fry it then have to like a burger with mushroom and salad in a brioche bun.

confusedandemployed Sun 10-Jul-16 21:05:33

Just grill it. It's too delicious to be adulterated with other flavours.

Bacon, poached egg and grilled halloumi, with tomato chutney on a breakfast muffin.

Branleuse Sun 10-Jul-16 21:07:52

in a pitta with salad, falafel and hummous

HALLOUUUMI (in Homer-style voice)

You must cook it. Grilled (or even better, barbecued) is infinitely better than fried or anything else.

I could happily eat a whole packet of grilled halloumi by itself blush but here are two of our favourite recipes:

And there are loads more yummy halloumi recipes on BBC Good Food.

I do a couple of Nigella recipes:

Mix chopped red chilli with olive oil, grill the cheese then drizzle with the oil mixture and a squeeze of lemon juice. Serve with fresh crusty bread.

Chop a normal potato, sweet potato, red onion, yellow pepper, whole garlic cloves - drizzle with olive oil and bake for an hour (ish). Then put Halloumi slices on top of the mix and grill till crispy.

Also, it is lovely mixed with pasta and pesto.

Absolutely love halloumi!!

DontCallMeBaby Sun 10-Jul-16 21:09:16

Fried, served on couscous salad with sweet chilli sauce (DD made the salad in food tech, wasn't remotely excited about it until I thought of halloumi).

Fried again, in a sandwich with houmous, tomato, and rocket.

It's good battered and deep fried too, often billed as 'veggie fish and chips' on menus, but I wouldn't do that at home, one for the pub.

Dry fried until crispy outside then placed on top of a roasted giant mushroom in a burger bun. Drizzle of sweet chilli sauce. Homemade nandos!
