Preparation

  • Combine the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, chilli and salt and pepper in a bowl and whisk. Use a little of the marinade to brush over both sides of the haloumi. Add the mushrooms to the remaining marinade and stir to coat all the mushrooms. Cover and refrigerate both the mushrooms and halloumi for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat a greased barbecue plate on medium-high. Barbecue the mushrooms for 5 minutes, turning occasionally until just tender. Remove to a large bowl. Barbecue the halloumi for 1-2 minutes each side or until golden and warmed through. Add to the warm mushrooms.

Tips from the author

Tip: Haloumi is a semi-hard, brined cheese made from a mixture of goat's and sheep's milk, and sometimes also cow's milk. It has a high melting point and so can easily be fried or grilled. It can be found in packets in the cheese section of the supermarket.
