Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Harissa Halloumi Sandwich & Carrot Slaw

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Cut the potatoes (skins on) into wedges, add them to a baking tray and drizzle with vegetable oil

Season generously with salt and pepper and put the tray in the oven for 30 min or until they're crisp

2 Harissa Halloumi Sandwich & Carrot Slaw

Meanwhile, boil a kettle

Peel (optional) and grate the carrots into a large mixing bowl

Add the rice vinegar and a large drizzle of olive oil, season with salt and pepper, mix well and set aside – this is your carrot slaw

3 Harissa Halloumi Sandwich & Carrot Slaw

Slice the halloumi in half lengthways (where the natural crease forms)

Add 500ml [800ml] boiled water to a wide pot and return to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, carefully add the halloumi slices and boil for 5-8 min or until softened

4 Harissa Halloumi Sandwich & Carrot Slaw

Meanwhile, add the ciabatta to a baking tray

Put the tray in the oven for 5 min or until the ciabattas are hot

While the ciabattas are toasting, chop the coriander finely, including the stalks

Combine the harissa paste and mayonnaise in a small bowl for serving – this is your harissa mayo

5 Harissa Halloumi Sandwich & Carrot Slaw

Once hot, remove the ciabatta from the oven and leave to cool before slicing in half

Add the chopped coriander and the nigella seeds to the carrot slaw and give everything a good mix

6 Harissa Halloumi Sandwich & Carrot Slaw

Once softened, drain and pat the halloumi slices dry with a clean tea towel or kitchen paper

Using a rolling pin, flatten and roll out each piece into a similar size as the ciabatta – these are your halloumi steaks

7 Harissa Halloumi Sandwich & Carrot Slaw

Once the potato wedges are nearly cooked, heat a dry, non-stick pan over a high heat and once hot, add the halloumi steaks

Cook on each side for 1-2 min or until golden

Tip: If you don't have a non-stick pan, cook the halloumi in a little vegetable oil
