Delicious..simply..delicious Amanda. What a great recipe, its quick and easy, using simple ingredients. Chewy salty cheese with a lovely crust, lemon and pepper. I served it with toasted sesame bagels, it was perfect. Thanks for sharing, I'll be buying more Halloumi.
Simple and tasty.
An easy, tasty, simple recipe. Couldn't be more perfect! Made for ZWT4.
Halloumi is a lovely Greek-Cypriot cheese. We had an all-grilled lunch today for Father's Day, so this was a perfect appy. The cheese gets gooey inside but doesn't really melt - it develops a 'crust'. The lemon juice, olive oil and pepper were the perfect complement!
The first time I ever tasted saganaki (fried halloumi) was in Egypt in 1976. It was the beginning of a love affair, and this recipe re-captures that feeling. Other recipes may suggest flouring the cheese or adding spices, but this recipe is perfection -- it delivers the simple elegance of a true saganaki -- halloumi, oil, lemon and pepper. Thank goodness, I have two more packs of halloumi in the fridge. Yummo!
*Reviewed during ZWT4* I love pan-fried halloumi. The lemon juice and pepper were a nice flavour combo for the cheese. We had this cheese with a green salad for lunch.
This was my first time actually having halloumi. I had wanted to in the past but due to the fat I kept deciding not to. Today I managed to find reduced fat halloumi so I gave this recipe a go and ended up enjoying it :) Thanks! Made for ZWT4.
