Author's Notes

Be careful with the grilling fumes, the chili flakes over a hot grill makes for a very hard to breathe smoke! It’s important to oil the grate well before adding the cheese The cheese may stick to the BBQ grate. I find it was easiest using a metal spatula to gently scrape below the cheese to loose it up gently before flipping it.

Directions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Slices the Halloumi Cheese (280 gram) 1 centimeter thick. Put it in a bowl and set aside.
Step 2
Combine the Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (1 tablespoon), Oil (1/3 cup), Soy Sauce (1 tablespoon), Lemon Juice (2 tablespoon), Shallot (1), Garlic (1 clove), Fresh Basil (1/4 cup), and Ground Cumin (3/4 teaspoon) in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
Step 3
Pour the marinade over the sliced cheese and gentle coat so they are all evenly coated.
Step 4
Marinade for a minimum of 15 minutes.
Step 5
Set the grill to 400-450 degrees F (205-230 degrees C) and oil the grates well.
Step 6
When the grill is hot, add the cheese onto the grates, make sure there isn’t too much marinade on the cheese when you put it on the grill.
Step 7
Grill them for approximately 2-4 minutes a side or until you see grill marks. Use a metal spatula and scrape gently below the cheese to loosen it off the grill before flipping it.
Step 8
Remove from grill when there are grill marks on both sides and the cheese is slightly melted.
Step 9
Set on serving plate.
Step 10
In a small sauce pan, add the leftover marinade, Oil (1 tablespoon) and Maple Syrup (1 tablespoon) and cook over low heat for 3-4 minutes until it is hot.
Step 11
Pour into a small bowl and serve it with the grilled halloumi! Enjoy!
