I’ve made this a few times now and tried to make it look nice in the photos, and I just can’t. You just need to know one thing: it tastes amazing. A-mah-zing.
We’d been making haloumi for a while, well not ‘making’ it but cooking it, and we were doing it wrong. It was too squeaky and didn’t have this awesome crust. There’s a right way to do it and this is it.
Sadly I’ve had to ditch dairy for a bit because it makes Luella a bit cranky as she has a bit of reflux & colic going on. I’m craving a piece of cheese/glass of milk/a dollop of yoghurt hard right now. But it’s all worth it.
So make this. Eat it. And think of me… not eating it. Enjoy.
Olive oil, for frying
Lemon wedges, to serve
Salt and pepper
Parsley, to garnish
♥ Cut haloumi into 5mm slices. Heat frying pan up and drizzle with olive oil. Cook haloumi for around 3 minutes, turning just once.
♥ Once cooked, place onto a serving platter. Season with salt and pepper and squeeze lemon juice over.
