A selection of the most DELICIOUS Halloumi Recipes – from fajitas and tray bakes, to sandwiches, salads and more.
What Is Halloumi?
Halloumi is a cheese which originated in Cyprus but is super popular in the Mediterranean region. It’s a semi-hard, un-ripened cheese made from a mixture of goat and sheep milk and has a salty taste that tastes great with vegetables.
You can eat halloumi raw, straight from the packet. BUT its high melting point means it’s fantastic for cooking – especially grilling, barbecuing or frying.
Halloumi can be served as part of a main dish or as an appetiser with vegetables, fruits, or breads.
And.. we are ADDICTED to the stuff! Seriously we can’t get enough of delicious, salty, squeaky halloumi!
Here you go halloumi lovers! We’ve put together a little collection of our favourite halloumi recipes for you to enjoy eating your way through!
