  • 600 g halloumi cheese
  • 5 tablespoon honey
  • 1 medium lemon
  • 4 sprigs thyme
  • 2-3 tablespoon olive oil


  • Slice halloumi in 1 centimeter thick pieces
  • In a small bowl, add the honey, juice of the lemon and thyme leaves. Mix well.
  • Add one layer of halloumi slices to an air tight container. Spoon over a layer of the honey lemon dressing. Add another layer of halloumi on top, add dressing , repeating until all the cheese has been added. Pour over any remaining dressing.
  • Place container in the fridge to marinate for as long as you can, minimum of one hour. Overnight if possible otherwise a few hours is sufficient.
  • Every now and then, turn container upside down so dressing can marinate and coat the cheese on all sides.
  • Heat some of the olive oil in a pan on medium heat. One heated, gently place some of the halloumi cheese. Don't overcrowd the pan or have pieces touching.
  • After 2-3 minutes when you have a nice sear, turn the cheese around. After 1 minute, add a few spoons of the dressing to glaze the cheese. Once the second side has seared, remove from the pan and add to a plate.
  • Keep repeating this process until all cheese is cooked
  • Upon serving, add a few more spoons of the honey dressing to coat the cheese, then dig in and enjoy!
