Halloumi Kebabs

Eating with your hands is tradition at a barbecue and these skewers are no exception! The salty halloumi cheese is the perfect complement to the umami-rich mushrooms. Customize these skewers any way you like!


250g halloumi cheese
1 yellow pepper, deseeded
1 red onion
8 large white or crimini mushrooms
1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
2 tbsp (25 mL) fresh chopped coriander
juice of 1 lime
1 clove of garlic, crushed
freshly ground black pepper


1. Cut the cheese, pepper and onion into even-sized pieces about 1 inch (2.5 cm) square.
2. In a large bowl, mix the oil, coriander, lime, garlic and plenty of ground black pepper. Stir in the cheese, pepper, onion and mushrooms and leave to marinate in the fridge for at least 30 mins or overnight if preferred. 3. When you’re ready to barbecue the kebabs, thread the cheese and vegetables onto skewers.
4. Place the kebabs over the hot coals, turning occasionally until charred at the edges – about 10 minutes. Brush with leftover marinade juices as you turn them.
5. Serve with a green salad.
