I recently did a guest post for Food Renegade… and I’m super excited to share it with you all!
Nothing beats some simple grilled skewers on a sunny summer day. These skewers have a unique little twist though… they have cheese. Yep, cheese. If you’ve never had halloumi, you’re in for a real treat…
Halloumi is a cheese originally from the Cyprus area, though now is popular all throughout the Middle East. It’s a tough to describe, but once you’ve had it, you’ll never forget. It’s firm in texture, but tastes similar to mozzarella.
A weird marriage to imagine, I know.
The best thing about halloumi is that it doesn’t change its shape when cooked, so it’s a perfect cheese for grilling, cooking, flambeing, etc. It will keep it’s form, but will develop this golden crispy exterior… so good. Slightly salty, but subtle still. See, it’s tough to explain… guess you’ll just have to try. 😉
