Fried Halloumi and Sesame Seed Squares Recipe by Nadine Lloyd


(Makes 18-24)

  • 8.8oz (250g) halloumi

  • 2.1pt (1litre ) rice bran oil

  • 1 egg

  • 2 tablespoons milk

  • 1 tablespoon garlic flakes

  • ½ teaspoon pepper

  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

  • 1 cup panko crumbs

  • ¼ cup black sesame seeds

  • ¼ cup white sesame seeds


Heat the oil in a medium-sized saucepan.

Using a medium-sized bowl, whisk the egg and milk together.

Using a large bowl, combine the panko crumbs, sesame seeds, garlic flakes, pepper, and cayenne pepper.

Slice the halloumi into bite-sized pieces.

Dip the pieces in the egg mix, then coat them with the panko crumb mixture.

Deep fry small batches for 5-7 minutes, or until golden brown.

For best results, serve immediately.
