  • 250g halloumi
  • 100g hazelnuts, lightly toasted and roughly chopped
  • 25g orange blossom water (or orange zest)
  • 100g Honey

Method:

  1. Cut the tip off the fig. Slice half the figs in lengthways, quarters and some in discs.
  2. Slice halloumi into 75mm -1cm slices. Drizzle extra virgin olive oil over the top of the halloumi.
  3. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  4. Heat honey and orange blossom water in a small saucepan to a gentle simmer, ensuring thoroughly mixed.
  5. Grill halloumi turning once, ensure high enough heat to gain good grill marks.
