  • RECIPE MAKES: 4 serves
  • PREP TIME: 10 min
  • COOK TIME: 20 min
Step 1

Place water in a medium-sized saucepan; bring to the boil. Place zucchini into boiling water, it will stop bubbling briefly. Bring water to gentle boil, simmer 4-5 min, until zucchini just tender and bright in colour. Drain, rinse with cold water, place on a paper towel, and set aside.

Step 2

Heat ½ the oil in a large heavy-based frying pan. Sautè capsicum and salt; 8-10min, until skin just starts to brown. Set to one side.

Step 3


Heat remaining oil in a small non-stick frying pan. Slice each haloumi block into 6 pieces. Fry in hot oil; 1-2 mins each side, until just browned.


Step 4

Stir zucchini into capsicum, divide evenly among serving plates. Top each serve with 3 pieces haloumi. Drizzle with chilli sauce and lemon juice if desired. Serve warm.
