Haloumi Delight (Starch Free)

IMG_3902This quick snack is so easy to make, and it always makes my guests go crazy!

All you’ll need is:

  • 2 packets of haloumi, halved lengthways and cut into thick slices
  • A dozen cherry tomatoes
  • Handful of fresh basil, torn
  • 1 tbsp capers
  • Half a lemon
  • Olive oil

To cook:

  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, fry cherry tomatoes in oil until slightly soft. Add torn basil leaves and capers and allow to cook for a few minutes.
  2. Meanwhile heat a dollop of olive oil in a large frypan on high heat. Place the haloumi slices flat on the pan, ensuring they are not sitting on top of each other.
  3. Fry for 2 minutes or until golden underneath, flip and cook for another 2 minutes. You want it to be very hot and very quick. If you cook it too slowly it will become chewy.
  4. Arrange haloumi on a platter and top with tomato basil mixture. Squeeze lemon over the plate and grind some black pepper to serve.
  5. Give everyone a fork or toothpick and watch the food disappear in front of your eyes!
