Barbecued Halloumi and Mushroom Skewers

These Halloumi and Mushroom skewers served on flatbread alongside with healthy hummus and fresh salad, creates a delicious and fresh meal.

Hello, Weekend! I am so excited to introduce to you my new recipe Barbecued Halloumi and Mushroom Skewers which I conjured up recently. These Halloumi and Mushroom Skewers are simply delicious. It's spicy and tangy sauciness infuses every bite with lip smacking deliciousness. These char-grilled skewers make the perfect treat for any BBQ. I bet this drool-worthy dish may also be enjoyed as much by non-vegetarians as much as the vegetarians.

It's summer in my neck of the woods, the sun is constantly shining although temperatures are not high as used to be and we hardly have seen much rain this year, actually just a couple of days ago we received a flyer from the water board company asking us to start saving the water. We try in every way.

Summer screams BBQ parties, and we keep up with it, every few weeks my other half loves to fire a BBQ. Tell you the truth I battle scorching sun and can't stand BBQ in very very hot weather, so we look out those days when the sun is still shining but temperatures are little lower. Past week has been perfect for us and couple of times we enjoyed BBQ meal with friends and family.

This year in every BBQ that we do, I have been trying to prepare a new dish. In the last BBQ a few days ago I made Halloumi and Mushroom Skewers.This time I chose to use Halloumi Cheese for our BBQ recipe, as sturdy enough to handle and cooked over the coals and doesn't loose its texture.

So in this recipe Halloumi cheese and Button Mushrooms are smothered in lime and chilli sauce, Vita Coco Coconut oil with various spices, I added a tiny bit of Apricot, sweet pepper and Thyme Chutney to bring that glossy glaze, then grilled on hot BBQ grills. I think lime, chilli and coconut combination was splendid. This sticky and tangy glaze brings the cheese and vegetables to life and adds that extra texture, tang and richness to the dish. Serve these delicious skewers on a lightly toasted Flatbread, Pitta Bread or Naan Bread with plenty of Chilli Hummus, fresh salads and yogurt or it is so good on its own just don't forget to squeeze some extra lime juice.



Notes:-
Instead of Halloumi, you can use Paneer or vegan can choose Tofu.
Any flavoured Hummus can be used.
