"Amy Halloumi"

This may sound really cheesy
(sorry no pun intended then)
I was grocery shopping this afternoon & I was pondering in the cheese section
what to purchase, what I could make blah blah blah
When over the loud speaker...

"Amy Halloumi could you please come to isle 6"

was announced...
Needless to say that helped me in my cheese selection.

2 Sprigs of Rosemary
Zest 1 Lemon
EVO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
Coarse Sea Salt
Halloumi sliced
Lemon wedges to serve

This is so easy....

Strip the leaves off the rosemary & throw into a mortar & pestle, along with the zest & a generous pinch of salt. Bash it all up until it looks like a paste then add a good slurp of EVO & continue to mix. The consistency should be like runny honey.
Pop the halloumi onto a plate & drizzle over the rosemary & lemon paste. Heat up a flat pan, drizzle a bit of EVO on then whack the halloumi on. Cook until golden brown on both sides then pop back into the pan to soak up the excess rosemary & lemon paste.
Serve warm with wedges of lemon &
