Halloumi with Chilli

This recipe suggests simply cooking in a non-stick pan, but you could just as easily throw the cheese on your outdoor grill while preparing the rest of your meal!


  • 2 tablespoons chopped deseeded fresh red chile
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound halloumi (sliced medium thin i.e., just under half a centimetre / 1/8 inch)
  • juice of ¼ lemon


  • Mix the chopped chilli and olive oil in a small bowl or cup and leave the flavours to deepen while you cook the cheese.
  • I use a non-stick frying pan for this, without any oil, and just give the cheese slices about 2 minutes a side until they’re golden-brown in parts.
  • When all the slices of halloumi are cooked, transfer them to a couple of small plates.
  • Give the chilli oil a stir, spoon it over the cheese, then give a spritz of lemon. That’s all there is to it.
