Gluten-Free Deep Fried Halloumi

3 Feb

If you fancy giving something a little bit different a try, then how about this Gluten-Free Deep Fried Halloumi? It’s a really nice alternative to fish and chips! I’ve seen it in the odd gastro-pub too. I found this bag of FreeFrom White Breadcrumbs going for less than half price in my local Tesco. So I thought I’d give them a try.

You will need:

  • 1 block of halloumi cheese
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 2 tbsp Gluten-Free plain flour
  • 4-6 tbsp Gluten-Free breadcrumbs
  • Also, a deep fat fryer full of oil!


  1. Pre-heat your deep fat fryer to 190 degrees centigrade
  2. Cut your halloumi into 8 thick slices
  3. Dip these in the flour to coat and shake of the excess
  4. Dip these in the egg to coat and shake of the excess
  5. Dip these in the breadcrumbs to coat and shake of the excess
  6. Place into your deep fat fryer basket and fry for 4 minutes, until golden
  7. Raise the basket and shake off the excess oil, drain on kitchen paper.

I served mine with chips and peas. They would also be great in a wrap or a roll, like a burger. They really are that easy and you’ll be so impressed with the tasty result!
