This is the first time I've had Haloumi cheese. It's got quite a chewy texture, similar to mozzarella, and a salty taste (because it's stored in brine). It's supposed to be the vegetarian's equivalent to bacon and I have to say I really like it.
Haloumi - 1 pack, sliced
Pomegranate seeds - handful
Parsley - 2 tbsp, finely chopped
Red chilli - 1/2 (or less if preferred), finely chopped
Lemon juice - 2 tbsp
Olive oil - 2 tbsp
Honey - 2 tbsp
1) Mix together the pomegranate seeds, olive oil, lemon juice, parsley and chilli in a small bowl.
2) Heat the frying pan and then add the haloumi slices. Fry until golden brown on both sides (this will only take about a minute on each side if the pan is hot).
3) Meanwhile, heat the honey in a small pan until runny.
4) Serve the haloumi slices on four plates and top with the salsa. Pour the honey over the top and serve immediately. Serves 4.
