Cooking: 20 Minutes

Servings: 4-6


  • halloumi 2 x 250g blocks
  • watermelon 1 small
  • ground coriander 1 tsp
  • sumac 1 tsp
  • ground cinnamon ½ tsp
  • cayenne pepper 1 tsp
  • black peppercorns ground to make 1 tsp


  • Step 1

    Soak 16 wooden skewers in cold water  for 30 minutes or use metal skewers.

  • Step 2

    Break each block of halloumi along its natural split, then slice each 1/2 into good-sized chunks. Cut the watermelon into equal-sized pieces. Alternately thread the halloumi and watermelon onto the skewers. In a small bowl, mix together the spices with a good pinch of salt, then sprinkle all over the skewers, pressing to stick.

  • Step 3

    Heat a griddle pan over a medium-high heat or cook over indirect heat on a BBQ. Grill the skewers for 2-3 minutes on each side or until charred and the halloumi starts to soften, then serve.
