These have been rather popular with friends, family and others....



Halloumi Kebab Sandwich
serves 1-2

Steve Lister

Ingredients
2 pitta bread
200g Halloumi cheese (nothing except maybe Indian Paneer cheese will do ?)
2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove finely chopped
tsp dried oregano
tsp freshly cracked black pepper
juice of half a lemon
(no salt as Halloumi is a salty cheese)
Salad leaves of your choice
cucumber sliced
tomato sliced
fresh red pepper sliced into rings (if small enough)
red onion sliced into rings
25ml Tahini for dressing (you might want to use salad cream, mayo, chilli sauce etc)

Method

Cut the halloumi into thick slices (about 1/4 inch)
Mix together the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano and pepper
Leave the Halloumi in the mixture for half an hour.
Place the Halloumi on a red hot griddle pan and cook until nicely coloured, turn it over and repeat (depending on heat of pan will only take a few minutes each side so don't leave it).
Warm the pitta breads under the grill (in the oven, in a toaster) following manufacturers instructions.
Slice the top edge of the pitta off (much easier than trying to slice down into it) and put in a little salad, some slices of cucumber, tomato and red peppers.
Add the cheese and some more salad building up until its nice and full.
Serve with the dressing on one side or you could add it as you are building it up.


Serving suggestion
Here you can see it served with small new potatoes that have been parboiled then oven roasted with pepper and sea salt until nice and crispy !

Goos in Lasagna? That may just work for Christmas!! Laughing

Your Halloumi pittas look great Steve, I live on Halloumi and Lountza with village salad when I'm in Cy. Haven't yet found a supermarket in UK that stocks Lountza, anyone?

Tahinisalata or Dashi (village name) is very easy to make:

Tahini/sesame paste
Fresh lemon juice
Water
Crushed garlic
Chopped flat leaf parsley

Yum!!!

Sorry everyone just need to let Dawn know that I've tried again.. Perhaps the email through the site isn't working?

Available in Tesco & Morrison's.

I thought I'd set this post to email if replied to ??

Sorry for the delay...

The dressing in the small coffee cup is simply Tahini !

(the dressing the Halloumi is cooked in is obviously the recipe itself)

Asda sell Halloumi where I live !

this lasagne recipe ?

and that looks another good recipe for Halloumi..!

Steve

as for Lountza asda also do smoked pork loin (as I'm sure many other supermarkets do...)
However if you buy some pork loin (as I did) added some smoked paprika, corriander seeds and covered in red wine, left in a sealed tub in the fridge for a week..... cooked it in the oven... worked very well!
