Print Recipe

Ingredients

  • 8 oz halloumi cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1/8 cup flour for dredging
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup brined capers, rinsed
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine (such as a Sauvignon Blanc)
  • 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • black pepper

Instructions

  • 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.
  • Reduce the heat to medium and remove the cheese.
  • Add the wine, lemon juice and capers to the pan and give it a stir. Cook the sauce for a few minutes and add the remaining butter and parsley. Return the cheese to the pan and turn off the heat.
  • Plate the cheese and serve with the sauce poured on top.
