Fucking halloumi

Post by Bastet » Thu Jun 21, 2018 2:16 am

Or I should say my fuck up when cooking halloumi. What’s the secret to frying it?

I end up with barely cooked warm cheese or setting off all fire alarms in the house and end up with scorched cheese.

It sounds like you are cooking it at too high of a temperature. Maybe turn it down a bit and cook longer. Cook it on the first side until it is browned. That might take some time. Only then should you flip it. It won't take nearly as long on the second side. You know it doesn't get all melty, right? Maybe you are slicing it too thick.

It's difficult to say when we have no idea what you are doing.

Medium heat. Lots of olive oil. 1/4" thick.

Halloumi is shit.

It doesn't have a flavour, it has a sound.

Squeaky.

That must be the halloumi you're using, Jessica. I'm not a huge fan - firstly, it's bloody everywhere here and secondly, it's too salty.

I had grilled halloumi served on curried garbanzo beans and raisins in Singapore. It was good.

Last summer in Nuba I ordered
'Halloumi Cheese
Traditional Middle Eastern cheese. Seared and served with fresh tomato, pomegranate nut dressing, and fresh mint'


for my Sis/BiL because she's afraid of spices and it fit the bill.

It's important to note that it can be made with different milk-some Sheep/some Goat maybe even Cow so there's quite a variation in taste & texture.

Unless you leave the halloumi in a heated pan to go and mow the lawn the stuff is foolproof. Heat oil of choice, add sliced halloumi and keep flipping until browned on both sides.

I think I could happily live on halloumi - I have some chilli halloumi to try this weekend although being a fairly big weekend ahead I think it's best to wait until an entirely sober time to cook the stuff......

Fried sqeaky water.

Don't understand this food.

It doesn't even absorb tastes like tofu.

OK, I have to assume that, like jessica fletcher, you have never had good halloumi. Fried water? It's cheese. Who doesn't love cheese??

It's salty cheese. Goes well on top of tomato, basil, or mint.
Better flavour than mozzarella or burrata salad.

It's a salty texture thing. You either like it or you don't.

Correct, I have never had tasty haloumi. I don't dislike, it just tastes like nothing

It reminds me of the contraceptive sponge.

Never tasted the sponge, but I can tell you that spermicide is quite astringent. Like an unripe perrsimmon.
