Helpful Tips


  • Make sure you slice your halloumi at least 1cm thick. Otherwise, it will melt and fall apart.

  • It is preferable to marinade the halloumi for at least 2-3 hours but I cook it after only marinading for 10 minutes. Either way, you'll love it.

  • Cook halloumi for only 2-3 minutes over high heat.

  • Once cooked, it is highly recommended you serve this appetiser immediately as halloumi tends to toughen when it goes to room temperature or cold.

  • You can re-heat halloumi in the microwave - however not for too long!


  • Appetiser: pile it on a plate and serve it on its own or with pita bread.

  • Salad: roughly chop leafy greens and add ripe Roma tomatoes, a handful of canned chickpeas, and kalamata olives. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, and oregano.

  • Wrap or Sandwich: add the halloumi to your favorite wrap, burger or sandwich.
