You might have heard about about Halloumi, well now you should try! And it's incredibly easy to enjoy!
I love to BBQ but sometimes choosing what to BBQ can be a bit limited. Halloumi is a fantastic way to jazz up your burgers, salads and more!
So let's start with what is Halloumi?
Traditionally prepared from goat's and/or sheep's milk on the Eastern Mediterranean island of Cyprus, Halloumi is a white, layered cheese, similar to mozzarella. It is a semihard, unripened, and brined cheese with a slightly spongy texture. Its flavor is tangy and salty, and it has no rind.
Halloumi is sometimes made from cow's milk. Which made in Canada as well!
It has a high melting point so it's perfect to bread then fry in a bit of oil on its own!
For the BBQ: Toss in oil and your favourite spices then grill on the BBQ until you see light grill lines on both sides.
Tasting Notes: On it's own it's quite bland and salty but fry or grill and it's sweet savoury deliciousness!
