Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat a large griddle pan or frying pan over a high heat. In a large bowl, combine the beetroot, orange segments and juice and white wine vinegar. Season, then gently mix together.

  • STEP 2

    Carefully slice each block of halloumi into 4 pieces, then season on both sides with black pepper. Griddle or fry the halloumi for 1-2 mins on each side until golden and crisp, and the cheese is beginning to melt. Add the watercress to the beetroot and orange salad, then toss together. Divide the salad between plates, then top each with slices of hot cheese.

RECIPE TIPS
SEGMENTING AN ORANGE

The neatest way to segment an orange is to slice off the top and bottom and sit it on a chopping board. Cut off strips of the peel and pith, then slice each segment free by cutting either side of the membrane.

MAKE IT WITH MACKEREL

GRIDDLED MACKEREL WITH BEETROOT & ORANGE: For a healthy alternative rich in omega-3, replace the halloumi with 4 x 75g mackerel fillets, skin-on. Season the fish with black pepper, brush with a little olive oil, then griddle for 2-3 mins on each side until cooked through and golden. Serve straight away with the salad.
