Halloumi and Asparagus Skewers
These take minutes to make, look spectacular and taste healthy and amazing. Perfect for the BBQ and to share with friends.
12 asparagus spears, ends trimmed and cut in two
300 gm halloumi
Extra – virgin olive oil for brushing
½ tsp each dried chilli flake
Pinch of sea salt
To serve: fresh mint leaves and lemon wedges
1. Slice your haloumi into slices approximately the same length as your asparagus spears. Thread your asparagus onto your skewers, alternating with your haloumi. Set aside.
2. Heat a char-grill pan (or barbecue) over medium-high heat. Brush asparagus and haloumi with olive oil and char-grill, turning occasionally, until haloumi is golden and asparagus is tender (3-4 minutes). Scatter with chilli, fresh mint, drizzle with extra olive oil, and serve with lemon wedges.
