Lemon and Mint Halloumi

Makes about 12 canapés

This recipe makes delicious zingy and salty canapés that are bursting with flavour. You could also use them as part of a tapas selection or to add flavour to a mediterranean salad.


  1. A 250g packet of Halloumi
  2. The zest of a lemon
  3. The juice of half a lemon
  4. Three tablespoons of olive oil
  5. A small handful of roughly chopped mint


  1. Cut the halloumi into flat bite-sized chunks, about 1cm thick.
  2. Spread the halloumi pieces out in a flat-bottomed bowl then add the lemon zest, juice and olive oil. Leave the halloumi to marinate for a couple of hours, or overnight.
  3. Heat up an oiled griddle pan (a frying pan will do if you don’t have a griddle), remove your halloumi pieces from the marinade with a slotted spoon or tongs and fry for a few minutes on each side until they are browned.
  4. Serve the halloumi with a little of the leftover marinade drizzled over it and scattered with the mint leaves.
