How we came up with this recipe

I love love LOVE halloumi recipes, especially our Halloumi Kebabs, but I wanted to make a portable version for days when we need to eat on the go or don’t feel like heating up the grill pan or barbecue.

We tested this until we got the right ratios for the sticky sauce and the perfect fillings. Rest assured they’re all basic ingredients and you can tailor a lot of it to what you like or have in the fridge.


Halloumi Wraps Ingredients nOTES

The ingredients for Halloumi Wraps laid out on a counter top in individual bowls.
  • Halloumi – You’ll need 2 packs for 4 people. You can slice up a block or buy it pre-sliced. If you’d prefer it to be softer rather than squeaky, try soaking it in boiling water for 10 mins before frying!

For the homemade sticky sauce:

  • Honey, sweet chilli sauce and ketchup – These regular store cupboard ingredients are a dream team for flavour and consistency

To serve:

  • You can use whatever fillings you fancy. I like to add the halloumi, little gem lettuces, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, hummus and lime into small tortilla wraps

How to make Halloumi wraps

A small bowl of red sweet chilli dressing with a spoon sticking out of it for step 1 in the recipe for Halloumi Wraps.

1. Mix your sticky sauce ingredients in a small bowl until combined.

Slices of halloumi in a frying pan, being fried in red sweet chilli sticky sauce, for the recipe Halloumi Wraps.

2. Add the halloumi slices to hot oil in the pan and fry as per the recipe below. When brown, add the sauce and coat the halloumi, continue to cook according to recipe below.

Now: Heat your wraps in the microwave, or wrapped in some foil in a low oven (or have them cold).

Spread each wrap with hummus, add lettuce, tomatoes and onion and top with pieces of halloumi – give each wrap a squeeze of lime to finish. Wrap up and enjoy!


Substitutions

  • Paneer – You can use paneer instead of halloumi if you prefer
  • Salad – You can swap the salad filling for whatever you fancy
  • Wraps – You could go for wholemeal wraps for additional fibre or gluten-free if you want to make this a GF meal

Leftovers

In the fridge You can keep this recipe in the fridge for 3 days, serve cold. Halloumi is best freshly cooked though as it can go quite hard when cooled.

In the freezer Cooked halloumi isn’t the best for freezing when it’s the star of the recipe, so avoid here is possible.

Top tip

Try soaking the halloumi in boiling water for 10 mins before frying if you want it to be softer rather than squeaky!

FAQs

What should I serve with the wraps?

These are fine to enjoy on their own, but you could serve with side dishes if you want to make this a larger meal.

Homemade chips, a simple Greek salad or a rice salad would be great.

Is this a vegan recipe?

No, halloumi is made from sheep’s milk, but you can buy vegan halloumi cheese as an alternative.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

  • Add the sauce into the pan with the halloumi, turn the halloumi until fully coated in the sauce and and cook for 2-3 minutes until the sauce is warmed through.
  • Meanwhile if you prefer warm wraps (I do!), heat your wraps in the microwave, or wrapped in some foil in a low oven. You can also toast the very carefully over an open gas flame to give them some colour and texture.
