• 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • juice of one (1) lemon
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • small bunch of fresh mint, chopped
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 package Halloumi cheese
  • 2 tablespoons pomegranate seeds (optional)

Step 1

In a large bowl, mix the first four ingredients, and season to taste with salt and pepper. May be made in advance and refrigerated.

Step 2

Preheat your grill. (If you wish to use your oven, set it on broil, or on a stick-free skillet on your stove top.)

Step 3

Slice the Halloumi into bite-sized pieces or in long strips and place the pieces into bowl; and pour the garlic-mint mixture over the cheese and let stand for ten minutes, stirring once or twice to coat all sides.

Step 4

If using your grill or skillet, using tongs, place the pieces of cheese on the grill/skillet. Otherwise, place the contents of the bowl into a shallow oven-proof dish, and place in your oven. Cook the cheese 4 minutes on each side.

Step 5

Remove the cheese and garnish with pomegranate seeds.

Step 6

Serve hot.
