How do you fry Halloumi cheese? I heated a large frying pan, and liberally coated it with olive oil. If you have ever fried Halloumi cheese you know what happened next. What a mess. I thought maybe I should patting the Halloumi dry before adding to the pan. I seen online instances where people lightly brush the Halloumi cheese with olive oil, and then place it in to a dry frying pan. Other things I seen online show adding only a small amount of olive oil to a hot pan. I guess I'll know better next time. Thanks in advance for any tips.
