I love pan-seared halloumi cheese and I thought it would be amazing with the slight sweetness of tomatoes, which are old friends of basil of course. I didn't add any salt as halloumi is very salty on it's on. You can adjust the amount of any of the ingredients to your tastes. I love garlic and probably use even more than a tsp when I make this dish, so use sparingly if you're not a big fan. I eyeballed the ingredients when I made this as well so they can be adjusted easily.
