Crispy Fried HalloumiA fancy side dish for squeaky cheese!

This Crispy Fried Halloumi can be served on a plate on its own with some sweet chili sauce..

..or cooked and topped on a good steak with a nice salad.

Halloumi is unlike any other cheese you have ever eaten (if you don’t know much about it). It is a Greek cheese that is ‘squeaky’ to eat – with a rubbery type texture. It is almost like a Feta cheese but less salty and less ‘brittle’.
