Points to remember:
- If your block of halloumi has a seam keep the uncut edge perpendicular to the direction you are slicing - this will stop the pieces falling apart.
- Cut the halloumi into 1cm thick slices and dry fry in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat.
- You don't need to add oil when cooking halloumi as it has quite a high fat content.
- Cook halloumi for 1-2 mins. When it starts to brown and crisp up turn the pieces over and cook on the other side for another minute or two.

How to cook halloumi on a barbecue
To cook halloumi al fresco, cut the block into thick cubes and thread onto skewers (soak wooden skewers in water for around 20-30mins before using). Brush them with a little olive oil, a squeeze of lemon juice too if you like, and cook on the barbecue grill for 5-10 mins, turning regularly, until golden and a little charred on all sides.
