    Default PIC's: Haloumi and zucchini fritters.

    http://tinypic.com/m/ddyzdh/3


    http://tinypic.com/m/ddyzdi/3


    I based it on this recipe.......

    http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/2016...loumi+fritters

    but doubled (and a bit) the recipe, and added some fresh sweet corn, and some
    leftover steamed veges, and used a whole slab of haloumi (about 380g), and
    didn't have the tzatziki dip to go with it.

    They were utterly *fantastic* hot (make sure you salt the mix quite well)
    with the haloumi nice and soft and tender.

    I also seasoned the flour with a fair bit of ground pepper.

    The SO now has one for her lunch, to go with the leftover Madras beef curry I
    whipped up for her a few nights back. She's going to warm both up for lunch
    today as it's raining, and has been raining since about 2am this morning.

    Cool :-)

    I just had one warmed up for breakfast.

    BTW, your Wonton Cheese/quiche Jalapeno/Fire in the Hole thingies have now
    been requested for the SO's upcoming birthday party.

    I was going to be cooking them anyways, but hadn't told her about it.
    She asked me this morning if I'd do them again....... it must be the
    dreary weather we're having at the moment, that makes her think of warm,
    mooshy, firey hot things to eat :-)

    That's great I'm happy she enjoys them. Give her my best regards for a
    wonderful birthday.

    I hadn't heard of haloumi before, so I had to look it up and came
    across this recipe http://www.101cookbooks.com/archives/001489.html

    Every day you learn something new is a good day :-)

    It's been a fridge staple for us for yonks.

    But you aren't alone, in the last couple of years I've 'converted' about 6
    people to eating grilled haloumi.... and they had never heard of it
    either!!

    People who've never seen or heard of it are utterly amazed when you slice
    some off and throw it straight into a hot frypan, cook it both sides till
    it's nice and brown, then throw it on their plate with a splash of lemon
    juice.

    If you slice it to the right thickness (around 1/4"), you get a squeak
    when you bite into it :-)

    >



    Chives and beans.... Hmmmmmmmmm, that'd make a change from the usual. The
    parsley and basil went quite well with the haloumi in the fritters, so you
    could probably use quite a range of fresh herbs on it.

    But I'd leave off the salt until you've tried it. Some haloumi can be a
    tad salty already.

    Just before the Castroville Artichoke Festival this year I cooked halloumi
    with asparagus and oregano:

    Toss trimmed asparagus spears with olive oil and put onto a broiler pan.
    Sprinkle with a little salt. Cut half-inch slabs of halloumi and put onto
    the broiler pan with the asparagus. Brush halloumi with olive oil. Broil
    until light brown spots are easily seen. Turn asparagus and halloumi, brush
    newly-exposed side of halloumi with olive oil, and broil for a few minutes
    more. Toss fresh oregano with olive oil and strew over the top of the
    asparagus and the halloumi; broil until the oregano begins to char.

    At least you have tried it :-)

    You don't have any international deli's around your way?

    Failing that, go to your local supermarket and ask them to get some in.

    I have hunted high and low for a particular Chai Tea, and could only get it
    in dribs and spurts around the place, so bought it online. Then got an empty
    container, took it to my local supermarket, and asked them to get it in. They
    are.

    The only place I've seen it locally is Whole Foods, which means it's
    probably not under ten bucks (and there doesn't seem to be a Whole Foods in
    the Tidewater area anyway).

    Well, I for one don't look at those sort of things, as it doesn't impact on
    me one way or the other.

    All I know is they are damn tasty!!

    I grew up with halloum. It is hard to find here and extremely
    expensive when I find it. I'm thinking of learning to make it myself.
