Ingredients

  • 1 tsp Olive oil
  • 2 Onions Peeled and cut into wedges (optional)
  • 4 Bell peppers See Note 1
  • 4 tsp Cajun spice mix See Note 2
  • 500 g Halloumi Cheese Sliced.
  • 2 tsp Runny honey

To serve

  • 8 Tortilla wraps See Note 3
  • Sour cream or greek yoghurt (Optional)
  • Lime wedges
  • Salsa See Note 4

Instructions

  1. Heat your olive oil in a frying pan until very hot.

  2. Add the peppers and HALF of the spice mix and cook until just starting to blacken at the edges. Remove from the pan and set to one side.

  3. Lay the halloumi into the empty, hot pan, sprinkle over the remaining spice mix and cook on both sides for a couple of minutes until browned.

  4. Drizzle the honey over just before removing from the pan.

  5. Serve on a platter with the peppers, wraps, yoghurt, lime wedges and avocado (plus salsa if using).

Recipe Notes

Onions

I have left these as optional as I know lots of children take offence at them! I do tend to include them if I can as they add flavour and extra vegetables.

Bell Peppers

Use whichever colours you prefer. I like a mix of red and yellow. Just deseed and slice into thin strips.

Cajun Spice Mix

Use whichever brand you have/like. Be sure that the pack hasn't been hanging around for years as it does lose it's flavour! You can use a Mexican/Taco/Fajita spice mix if you prefer.

Tortilla Wraps

I like to toast these under the grill or directly on the gas hob before serving to give them a little texture and colour. This is optional.

Salsa

I made a little salsa to serve, just using:

  • Tomatoes
  • Red Onion
  • Lime Juice
  • Mint

You could obviously use shop bought if you prefer or leave out all together.
