Very quick and simple idea for Halloumi. Serves very well with a herb salad or salad of bitter leaves such as radichio and rocket.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the halloumi into 5mm slices and place in a dish or tray in a single layer.
  2. Mix lemon juice and honey and pour over the cheese.
  3. Turn the cheese slices to coat evenly and leave to marinate for at least 1 hour.
  4. Heat up a pan and when ready to serve the meal place the cheese in until golden brown, turn and pour in any remaining marinade.
  5. Serve immediately with your choice of salad.

This is so good over baby arugula leaves but I had so much trouble not having the cheese stick to the pan. I don't have a new non-stick pan so that may be the reason but I always make haloomi cooked in olive oil and have no problems. Make sure to serve this immediately or the cheese hardens! I had two pans that had hard stuck on cheese to scrub. I won't make this again unless I get a new pan.

excellent! i really enjoyed this simple dish, the one mistake i made was to have the heat to low at first for a quick browning, next time it will look prettier lol. made for best of 2009 tag

I enjoyed this so much. I love Halloumi and have yet to try a recipe that I haven't liked. This recipe is wonderful. The cheese has a nice subtle salty, lemon, honey flavor to it. I served the halloumi on top of toasted mini bagels and poured the marinade overtop. It was excellent. Thanks so much for sharing.
