Halloumi is an essential component of many Mediterranean recipes and a favourite ingredient at HelloFresh. However, to get it perfectly cooked requires a few easy tips and tricks. Here’s how to cook the perfect halloumi.
- Don’t use oil.
The halloumi will release its own fat as it fries – and as it doesn’t melt like other cheeses, it shouldn’t stick to the pan.
- Use a non-stick pan 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 center.
- 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 to add an extra layer of flavour to this Mediterranean favourite.
