Oh block of halloumi
You stop me being gloomy
Your salt is so shwoomy
Though not from a ewe-my
But, what can I do me
With you-mi?
Other than slicing you and frying you or chopping you up and putting you in a salad?

(okay, the last line needs work.... and some of the rest, perhaps, but basically, share your halloumi recipes here, please!)

I have none but what you've already described. Surely that's enough, though!

Also, didn't we have a thread like this before?

I did do a search for "halloumi", but no joy. Unless, of course, you remember it because you are the same Chris I have spoken to elsewhere on this (very important) subject. In which case, hello again, and I do like your sense of humour.

And if you aren't, I've probably just confused you quite a bit.

I wanted something else because fried cheese just seems TOO decadent. I mean, fat fried in fat... lovely, and stuff, but I'm getting quite elderly and need to watch my waist.

Funny I just bought a block of halloumi, which I fried in olive oil and served with roasted and Turkish pepper dusted Brussels sprouts, per a Melissa Clark recipe.

Crusty bread, griddled halloumi, rocket, your favourite chilli sauce, mayo = sandwich of the gods.
