Haloumi cheese

360 g, thinly sliced

Fresh red chilli

1 g, thinly sliced

Lemon(s)

2 medium, cut into wedges

Oil spray

1 x 3 second spray(s)

Instructions

  1. Cut each packet of haloumi into 12 x 5mm thick slices. Lightly spray a large, non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over high heat. Cook haloumi slices for 1–2 minutes each side or until crisp and golden brown.

Notes

SERVING SUGGESTION: Green leaf salad.TIP: Haloumi is a firm Cypriot cheese available from large supermarkets. Once opened, it can be stored for up to two weeks in brine in an airtight container in the fridge. Rinse in water or soak in milk to get rid of excess saltiness. Because it has a higher than normal melting point, haloumi is also good for baking and grilling.
