Haloumi with lemon and zaatar recipe

The Middle Eastern Food Kitchen (The home of delicious Middle Eastern Food Recipes) invites you to try Haloumi with lemon and zaatar recipe. Enjoy quick & easy Middle Eastern food and learn how to make Haloumi with lemon and zaatar.    

Haloumi is a firm, salty cheese made from sheep's, goat's or cow's milk. It has Middle Eastern and Mediterranean origins and is also made locally. It is usually eaten cooked.


250g haloumi cheese
flour for dusting
olive oil
½ lemon
1 tsp zaatar (a spice mixture made of thyme, sesame seeds and sumac, available from Middle Eastern or Mediterranean food shops. If unavailable, use either dried thyme or oregano).


Cut haloumi into 1 cm slices and lightly dust in flour. In a pan over a
medium-high heat, fry slices of cheese in oil until golden brown. Gently flip
over and cook a minute longer. Don't worry if the cheese breaks up. It should
now be melting a little.
To serve

Sprinkle with zaatar spice and a good squeeze of lemon juice. Remove from the
pan and place around the vine-baked mushrooms.

Serve 4-6.
