Marinated Halloumi Cheese Kabobs with Herbs

Marinated Halloumi Cheese Kabobs with Herbs

Serves 6
For the best flavor, marinate the cheese and vegetables 24 hours before grilling. Halloumi, a cheese from Cyprus that's made primarily from goat's and sheep's milk, is similar to fresh mozzarella in flavor, but works wonders on the grill.
Ingredients: 
  • 12 ounces halloumi cheese, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 4 cremini or white button mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons chopped mixed fresh herbs, such as thyme, oregano, mint and parsley
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Ground black pepper to taste

Method: 
In a large non-reactive bowl, combine herbs, garlic, oil, lime juice and pepper. Add cheese, onion, bell pepper and mushrooms and stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours, stirring occasionally. 

Prepare a grill for medium heat cooking. Thread a mushroom cap onto a 12-inch skewer, then thread on a piece of onion, a piece of bell pepper and a cheese cube. (If using wooden skewers, soak in water for 30 minutes before assembling.) Repeat with more onion, bell pepper and cheese, ending with another mushroom cap to form each kabob. Repeat with remaining 2 mushroom caps, onion, bell pepper and cheese. Grill kabobs, basting with any remaining marinade and flipping frequently, until lightly browned on the edges, about 10 minutes.
