Halloumi block

You can use any brand of halloumi; I used this type from Sainsbury’s.

Oil

I brushed a little olive oil over each slice of halloumi; this not only adds some extra flavour, it also helps it to crisp up some more on the outside.

Seasoning

Halloumi is typically quite salty, so be careful how much seasoning you add. In fact, you don’t have to add any if you’d prefer not to. I sprinkled a little dried thyme over mine.

Air Fryer

You can use any air fryer for cooking halloumi.
