Seared Halloumi with Hemp Dukkah and Honey

Seared halloumi with hemp dukkah and honey

Halloumi has got to be one of my all time favourite cheeses. It is salty, firm, versatile and it makes a delightful squeaky noice when you chew it.

Halloumi makes a great addition to salads and cheese platters. It has often come to my rescue when I discover last minute at a dinner party that a guest is vegetarian!

In this recipe, we use Vasse Valley’s award-winning Roasted Hemp Seed Dukkah to spice up a traditional seared Halloumi. A drizzle of honey after frying creates the perfect sweet and sour combo.

Serves 4


2 packets Halloumi

2 tbsp plain flour

1 egg, lightly beaten

1/4 cup Vasse Valley Roasted Hemp Seed Dukkah

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup honey, warmed


  1. Slice Halloumi diagonally into flat triangles, about 1 – 1.5 cm thick.
  2. Coat each slice thinly with flour, dip in beaten egg, then dip in dukkah.
  3. Heat oil in a pan and fry a few slices of Halloumi at a time till nice and toasty brown on both sides.
  4. Drizzle with some honey before serving with a nice salad.
