  • flour for dusting
  • olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon zaatar

Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:10min 

  1. Rinse the haloumi to remove excess salt, and pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Cut the haloumi in slices about 1cm thick, and lightly dust with flour. Fry the slices in olive oil until golden brown on both sides. It should be just melting.
  3. Sprinkle with zaatar and squeeze over a little lemon juice.
