These halloumi pittas are speedy to prepare and perfect to enjoy al fresco! You'll make spicy crème fraîche to drizzle over the pan-fried halloumi before packing into crisp wholemeal pittas. A lemon, almond and sultana couscous is the perfect accompaniment to enjoy on the side. Halloumi heaven!

Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 10-Min Halloumi Pittas With Couscous Salad

Before you begin...

Get all your ingredients and equipment ready

Skim through these steps

Wash your fruit and veg

Note: Equipment and pan sizes vary. Make sure you cook food thoroughly (even if it takes you a little longer than 10 mins)

2 10-Min Halloumi Pittas With Couscous Salad

Now, let's get started!

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 395°F/ Gas 6

Tip: This is to warm up your pittas, so alternatively just use your toaster!

Boil a kettle

Add the couscous and sultanas to a heatproof bowl with a generous pinch of salt and 150ml [300ml] boiled water, cover and set aside

3 10-Min Halloumi Pittas With Couscous Salad

Add the wholemeal pittas to a baking tray

Put the tray in the oven for 5-6 min or until warmed through

4 10-Min Halloumi Pittas With Couscous Salad

Combine the crème fraîche with the Sriracha hot chilli sauce (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) in a small bowl – this is your spicy crème fraîche

Tip: Use the crème fraîche pot to save on washing up!

5 10-Min Halloumi Pittas With Couscous Salad

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat

Slice the halloumi into 8 [16] slices

Once hot, add the halloumi to the pan and cook for 3-4 min or until golden all over

 

6 10-Min Halloumi Pittas With Couscous Salad

While the halloumi is cooking, chop the parsley finely, including the stalks

Cut the lemon[s] in half

Tip: If you're using a toaster, heat up the pittas now!

 

7 10-Min Halloumi Pittas With Couscous Salad

Once all the water has been absorbed by the couscous and sultanas, add the juice of 1/2 [1] lemon, 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil, the flaked almonds and chopped parsley to the couscous and give everything a good mix up

Tip: Taste the couscous to see if it needs any more salt!

Cut the remaining lemon into wedges
