Nigella Lawson halloumi cheese with sweet chilli sauce recipe on Simply Nigella

Nigella Lawson served up tasty grilled halloumi cheese with homemade sweet chilli sauce sweetened with honey on Simply Nigella.

Nigella says: “There is something so compelling about this squeaky cheese, and my fridge is stocked with it at all times. Most regularly I treat it as vegetarian bacon, dry-fried in a hot pan then dolloped with a peeled, soft-boiled egg. But the idea for this recipe came to me one evening when I felt the need to counter the siren call of the halloumi’s saltiness with some sweet-and-heat.”

The ingredients are: 3 fresh red chillies, 2 tbsp runny honey, 1 lime, halved and 225g block halloumi cheese, sliced into 8 pieces.

To serve: salad leaves of your choice and extra-virgin olive oil to taste.
