Halloumi

And just when we thought they couldn’t become any more irresistible, now there are Halloumi fries, which are appearing on menus all around the globe, becoming a worldwide hit!

Halloumi fries are fried sticks of halloumi, a Cypriot semi-hard cheese made from a combination of goat’s and sheep’s milk.  Its high melting point makes it perfect for grilling and frying.  To make these delicious fries, the cheese is coated in a mixture of flour before being dipped in hot oil. It is often accompanied by various garnishes and sauces such as tzatziki or mayonnaise.

Crispy and crunchy on the outside and perfectly cooked on the inside, it’s the perfect combination for Halloumi lovers and below is a simple recipe so you can try to make them at home!
