Grilled halloumi is a simple and delicious Mediterranean appetizer that's ready in minutes. Cook on an indoor or outdoor grill and serve with a fresh salad.
Servings 4 servings
- 8 ounces halloumi
- 1 tablespoon olive oil plus more for serving
- Sliced tomatoes for serving
- Sliced cucumbers for serving
- Fresh mint for serving
- Zaatar for serving
Drain the halloumi and slice in wide thin pieces, about 8 slices. Pat the slices very dry with paper towels.
Heat the olive oil in a grill pan or heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced halloumi and cook undisturbed until the bottoms are well-browned, about 3-4 minutes.
Use a spatula or tongs to flip the halloumi slices and cook on the other side until browned, about 2-3 more minutes.
Plate the grilled halloumi with sliced tomatoes, sliced cucumbers, fresh mint, zaatar and a drizzle of olive oil, if desired
Storage: It's best to enjoy the halloumi straight away. You can keep it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days, but will start to dry out and become hard.
Equipment: For indoor grilling, I love using the Anolon nonstick griddle/pan (affiliate link). It creates crisp texture with beautiful grill marks.
