Panfried Haloumi with Chilli Cucumber Salsa

Hot pan-fried slices of haloumi with a spicy cucumber salsa.

Serves: 6
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes
  • 1 lebanese cucumber, finely diced
  • ¼ cup coriander leaves
  • 2 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce
  • 2 teaspoons lime or lemon juice
  • 350g Turkish bread, sliced
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 180g haloumi, drained

Combine cucumber, coriander, sweet chilli sauce and lime juice together and season to taste. Toast bread slices until golden. Cut haloumi into slices 0.5cm thick. Just prior to serving, heat an oiled pan and panfry haloumi for 1-2 minutes until golden on both sides. Serve immediately on toasted bread topped with Cucumber Salsa and drizzled with sweet chilli sauce.


Try this on the barbeque – cook the toast on the grill and the Haloumi on the flat plate of the barbeque.

It is important that the Haloumi is served hot, otherwise it will become rubbery.

For a delicious salad, combine rocket with cucumber salsa ingredients, top with pan fried Haloumi and dress with light olive oil and extra lime juice.
