Halloumi cheese has a really high melting point, allowing it to be pan-fried or even grilled without turning to goo. We like to think of it as the cheese curds of Cyprus. This halloumi with honey and cashews recipe is so beautifully simple we almost feel a little silly calling it a recipe, but this one is too good to keep to ourselves. Most fried halloumi recipes lean toward the savory, but we love it with a sweeter touch. Put it on the table with flatbread and cucumbers for a Middle Eastern-style breakfast, or with a plate of baklava, fresh fruit, and thyme tea for a Moroccan afternoon repast. Try this fried halloumi recipe with our jeweled rice with pistachios and stuffed figs with goat cheese recipe.
