Seared Lemon Halloumi

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by PinkCherryBlossom

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

Top Review by UmmBinat

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.
