Halloumi with chilli


2 tbsp red chillies, fresh, chopped and deseeded (about 2 medium chillies)
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 packets halloumi cheese, 250g each, sliced medium thin (i.e., just under half a centimetre)
0.25 lemons, juice only

1. Mix the chopped chilli and olive oil in a small bowl or cup and leave the flavours to deepen while you cook the cheese.

2. I use a non-stick frying pan for this, without any oil, and just give the cheese slices about two minutes a side until they're golden brown in parts.

3. When all the slices of halloumi are cooked transfer them to a couple of smallish plates.

4. Give the chilli oil a stir, spoon it over the cheese then give a spritz of lemon. That's all there is to it.
