Hot Honey

  • 100 g honey
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (or more or less depending how spicy you like it)
  • 2 teaspoon vinegar (I've used apple cider vinegar)


  • 300 g halloumi cheese
  • 3 tablespoon hot honey
  • ½ lemon
  • 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 peaches sliced in quarters
  • Arugula salad for serving


  • Make the hot honey by adding the honey and red pepper chilli flakes to a pot and simmer on low heat
    After 5 minutes when it starts to bubble, turn off the heat and add the vinegar and stir together. Allow to cool and place in a jar
  • Next, make the halloumi marinade by combining the olive oil, 3 tablespoon hot honey and lemon juice in a cup or small bowl. Stir together well
  • Slice the halloumi into thick 1cm slices and pat dry with a paper towel. Place in an airtight container or bowl and pour the marinade over the cheese slices. Allow to marinate for 30 minutes or even overnight in the fridge
  • Heat up olive oil in a non-stick pan or skillet on medium high heat. Add the halloumi cheese slices in a single layer and pan-fry for a minute
  • On the other side of the pan, add the peach slices and allow to cook together
  • After a few minutes, when you can see the halloumi cheese browning up on the sides, flip them around. Pour over spoons of the leftover remaining sauce on the cheese and peaches and allow to sizzle for a minute until the cheese is golden brown on both sides
  • Drizzle over any leftovers of the marinade and serve over an arugula salad or greek salad and enjoy!!
