Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.

Instructions

  1. Heat a grill over medium-high heat. Toss haloumi in one tablespoon olive oil.
  2. Place haloumi on grill and cook on both sides until golden brown. Remove from heat and put into a bowl. 
  3. Squeeze lemon juice into bowl, add remaining tablespoon of olive oil, and add sesame seeds. Toss to coat.
