Pan-fried Haloumi is best served straight from the frying pan so have the guests ready to go.

INGREDIENTS

  • Slices of Haloumi cheese
  • Well-seasoned flour

METHOD

  1. Briefly rinse slices of cheese under running water and drain on absorbent paper. Dip into well-seasoned flour, shake off excess and pan fry in a small quantity of hot oil, turning once only when golden and crusty.
  2. Serve immediately with a squeeze of lemon juice and freshly ground black pepper

HANDY TIPS

Use either Haloumi, Feta, Raclette, Gruyere or Tilsit cheese. Variation: Cut Haloumi into 2-3cm cubes and thread onto wooden skewers. Dip the cheese into beaten egg and coat with fresh sourdough bread-crumbs. Deep-fry the skewers until the crumbs are golden and the cheese is starting to melt. Serve immediately with lemon wedges. Squeeze lemon over the cheese.
