Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Za'atar Halloumi Fries With Tomato-Chilli Salsa

Chop the tomatoes finely

Trim, then slice the spring onion[s]

Cut the red chilli[es] in half lengthways, deseed (scrape the seeds out with a teaspoon) and chop roughly

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic 

2 Za'atar Halloumi Fries With Tomato-Chilli Salsa

Chop the coriander roughly, including stalks

Strip the mint leaves from their stems and chop them roughly

 

 

3 Za'atar Halloumi Fries With Tomato-Chilli Salsa

Chop all the vegetables and herbs together (Don't use all the chilli if you can't handle the heat!) on the board or until a fine mixture remains

Transfer the mixture to a bowl, add 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] olive oil with the chilli jam and season generously with salt and pepper and give everything a good mix up – this is your tomato-chilli salsa

 

 

4 Za'atar Halloumi Fries With Tomato-Chilli Salsa

Slice the halloumi widthways into 6 [12] equal-sized strips 

Then slice each strip in half so you are left with 12 [24] equally shaped halloumi strips 

5 Za'atar Halloumi Fries With Tomato-Chilli Salsa

Add the sesame seeds, ground cumin, dried thyme, sumac and dried oregano to a pestle & mortar with a pinch of salt 

Grind into a coarse powder – this is your za'atar

6 Za'atar Halloumi Fries With Tomato-Chilli Salsa

Combine the cornflour and za'atar on a plate

Add the halloumi strips and roll until fully coated in the flour

7 Za'atar Halloumi Fries With Tomato-Chilli Salsa

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

Once very hot, add the halloumi strips and cook for 2-3 min on each side or until golden and crispy (you may have to do this in batches)

Once golden, place on a kitchen towel to drain off any excess oil – these are your za'atar halloumi fries
