Fried halloumi cheese with lime and caper vinaigrette

Fried halloumi cheese with lime and caper vinaigrette is an easy and delicious dish. The lime and capers set off the flavour of the halloumi well. Serve this dish with a large green or seasonal salad. 

Top Tip: Make double the dressing for adding to other salads later in the week - always think about making food easy for yourself.

  • 2 TBS extra virgin olive oil

  1. Unwrap the cheese and pat it dry with kitchen paper. Then, using a sharp knife, slice it into 8 slices, including the ends
  2. Prepare the dressing by whisking all the ingredients together in a small mixing bowl
  3. When you are ready to serve the halloumi, heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat
  4. When the oil is really hot, press each slice of cheese into seasoned flour to coat it on both sides, then add them to the pan for 1 minute on each side, until they are a good golden colour
  5. Serve them straightaway with the dressing poured over, add a sprig of coriander and enjoy with a large salad
