  • About

Halloumi is a Cypriot semi-hard, unripened brined cheese made from a mixture of goat’s and sheep’s milk. With its high melting point, it is ideal for frying or grilling –it softens rather than melts and is sometimes known as the ‘squeaky’ cheese!



  • Lightly oil a heavy-based frying pan or griddle pan and set over a medium-high heat.
  • Cut the halloumi into 1cm slices and place in the hot pan. Cook for 2 minutes on each side or until the cheese has softened with a nice golden-brown crust.
  • Arrange 3-4 slices
