Pan-fried Halloumi with Gooseberries and Mint

© 2020 |

Perfect for nibbling, or as a starter with a few drizzles of sweet tangy raspberry balsamic glaze and quality olive oil, these pan-fried Halloumi cheese are crisp, sticky, chewy and totally delicious. It is best served warm and you can complement it with different kinds of seasonal fruit, fresh mint or oregano leaves. Once it cools down, halloumi will get rubbery again. It can be reheated slightly, but the taste and texture won't be the same.

Tangy and salty with squeaky spongy texture, Halloumi (or Haloumi) is a semihard, unripened, and brined cheese traditionally made with goat's and/or sheep's milk. It's most used as a grilling/frying cheese because it maintains its shape when heated. It can be found in most supermarkets or specialty stores. I bought mine in ALDI.
250 g Halloumi, cut into 1cm-thick slices
Gooseberries or cherries, pitted
Fresh mint leaves
Extra virgin olive oil
Raspberry balsamic glaze
Freshly milled pepper

Heat a non-stick grill pan or frying pan over medium-high heat. Brush halloumi slices lightly with olive oil, and a squeeze of lemon juice too if you like. Cook halloumi for 1-2 minutes. When it starts to brown and crisp up turn the slices over and cook on the other side for another minute or two.
Arrange halloumi on a plate with the gooseberries or cherries and mint. Drizzle with a bit of olive oil and balsamic glaze and season with freshly milled pepper.
