The firm texture of halloumi makes it a great candidate for grilling. Here, planks of the cheese are quickly marked on the grill, then topped with a mixture of chopped roasted peppers and Calabrian chilies for a sweet and hot kick. This appetizer comes together quickly and is perfect when served with crusty bread.



  1. Preheat a grill to medium high. Combine the roasted peppers, Calabrian chiles, garlic, lemon juice and olive oil in a small bowl. Season with salt, stir and set aside.
  2. Oil the grill grates. Grill the halloumi until well marked and warmed through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove to a platter. Spoon the red pepper mixture over the cheese and top with basil and mint. Serve with bread.
