Casual Friday with Linguine and Lemony Herbed Halloumi
Guest bloggers are welcomed. Just shoot me off an email.
Halloumi cheese is a firm, Mediterranean cheese that can be nicely pan grilled or put on the barbecue. I love its meaty nature.
Linguine with Lemony Herbed Halloumi
Marinade slices of halloumi cheese in olive oil with dried thyme and oregano.
Make your linquine just the way you like it.
Put the linquine in a pasta bowl and toss with a little of the olive herb marinade from the halloumi. Heat a heavy pan until hot but not smoking. Place slices of halloumi in the hot pan and grill until golden. Turn and grill both sides. Remove from heat and squeeze fresh lemon juice over it.
Each person's bowl of linguine can be topped with two slices of grilled halloumi with lemon juice. Grate parmesan or Greek kasseri cheese over. Serve immediately.
