Cut the Halloumi cheese into 1/3-inch slices and sprinkle some pepper on top. Dredge the slices in flour. Beat the egg in a shallow dish and set aside.
In a large, non-stick skillet melt 1 tbsp of butter with olive oil on medium high heat. Dip the floured cheese in the egg and transfer onto a hot pan. Fry the slices for about 1 minute on each side, until the egg starts to brown.

Plate the cheese and serve with the sauce poured on top.
