Halloumi and Courgette Skewers

We decided to have a fake bbq tonight for dinner. Its fake because we didn’t use the bbq, we just ate food which you would usually put on a grill! I just don’t see the point in lighting a bbq just for the two of us.

I first made these skewers last year after becoming obsessed with halloumi. This is such a fresh, summery side dish, its the perfect vegetarian accompaniment.


  • 250g Halloumi
  • 1 Courgette
  • 1 Chilli
  • Mint Leaves
  • Lemon
  • Olive oil


Chop your halloumi and courgette into bite sized pieces and place in a bowl, along with 1 chilli, de-seeded and thinly sliced. Thinly chop your mint leaves and add to the bowl, along with the juice of 1 lemon and a drizzle of olive oil. Stir, and leave to marinate in your fridge for at least half an hour.

If cooking on a bbq, skewer the halloumi and courgette and cook until charred. I put these under the grill for about 8 minutes, on a high heat and turned half way through.
