Next level halloumi fries

BBC Good Food's new favourite party food is hot, crispy halloumi fries with spicy dip. This epic cheesy sharing snack is all you need for a great night in with friends

Points to remember: 

  • Cut 2 x 250g blocks of halloumi into fries.
  • Mix together 75g plain flour and 3 tbsp za’atar. Toss the fries in the flour mixture, making sure they are coated completely.
  • Heat oil to 180C or until a piece of bread browns in 20 seconds. Fry the halloumi in batches for 2-3 mins until golden brown and crispy. Drain on kitchen paper and sprinkle with sea salt
  • Zest 1 lemon and cut into wedges.
  • Mix 1 tbsp harissa, and lemon zest into 170g Greek yogurt. Serve alongside the halloumi fries, with the lemon wedges for squeezing and mint scattered over.
