Pea and Halloumi Fritters

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Aunty Dotty

I love any recipe using halloumi as I'm developing a quiet addiction to 'the squeaky cheese'. This makes a nice lunch with a side salad, or a starter for a summer dinner.

These were tasty and light, perfect for lunch. I served it per suggestion with some balsamic roasted tomatoes. The batter was thinner than I expected, but it turned out very tasty. Made for PAC Fall 2007. Thanks Aunty Dotty!
