Yields

8 servings

Ingredients

  • 250g halloumi cheese, sliced into 1-inch thick pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 large red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 large zucchinis, cut into 1-inch slices
  • 2 large cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 10-12 bamboo skewers, soaked in water for at least 30 minutes

Instructions

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.

Thread a piece of halloumi cheese, a piece of red bell pepper, a piece of yellow bell pepper, a piece of red onion, a slice of zucchini, and a cherry tomato half onto each bamboo skewer, leaving a little space between each piece.

In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, garlic, and lemon juice.

Brush the mixture evenly onto both sides of the halloumi and vegetables on the skewers.

Season the skewers with salt and pepper to taste.

Place the skewers on the grill and cook for 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally, until the halloumi is golden brown and the vegetables are tender.

Serve immediately and repeat with the remaining skewers.

Notes

For an easy and efficient prep, slice the halloumi cheese and vegetables around the same time to maintain freshness. You can also prepare the olive oil, garlic, and lemon juice mixture ahead of time and store it in the fridge for up to a day.

To ensure the halloumi cheese doesn’t break apart while grilling, make sure to handle it gently, and don’t overcrowd the skewers.

For a crispy exterior and a tender interior, cook the skewers over medium-high heat. Bamboo skewers can be reused, simply soak them in water again and let them air dry before storing them in an airtight container.

You can also customize the vegetables according to your preference, but try to maintain a colorful mix for a visually appealing presentation.

Don’t press down on the skewers while they’re grilling, as this can cause the halloumi to break apart. Instead, gently turn them every 2-3 minutes to achieve even cooking.
