How to Cook the Perfect Halloumi for Mediterranean Recipes
Halloumi is an essential component of many Mediterranean recipes. However, to get it perfectly cooked requires a few tips and tricks. Here’s how to cook the perfect halloumi the next time you try your hand at a Mediterranean recipe.
  • Don’t use oil. The halloumi will release its own fatty juices as it fries – and as it doesn’t melt like other cheeses, it shouldn’t stick to the pan.
  • Use a non-stick pan or griddle at medium-high heat. Since you won’t be using oil, make sure the pan you use is non-stick so you can easily flip the halloumi during cooking.
  • Cut your halloumi into 1cm slices. Slices thinner than 1cm will crisp up too quickly and you’ll miss out on the gooey centre.
  • Only flip your halloumi once all the fatty liquid has evaporated. The cheese should be golden brown before you flip it.
  • The second side will only take a minute to brown. Don’t leave it on the stove too long or your halloumi will dry up.
Bonus tip: Rub the halloumi with dried herbs like mint or oregano before cooking for an extra layer of flavour that will perfectly complement any Mediterranean dish.
