Barbecue for 5-10 mins, turning occasionally and brushing on any leftover marinade. Serve with houmous and couscous.

Lovely recipe, the marinade really packs a punch on these skewers. I served this with couscous salad, hummus and pita and it made a delicious, easy supper.

gorgeous but next time will grill halloumi separately from the veg as it takes less time to cook

My family loved this, as did I. Will definately cook this again, especially as my children complained when there was no more left. Cooked it indoors, probably even more delicious on BBQ.
