Grilled Halloumi Skewers with Herbs and Lemon


  • 1 block halloumi cheese, cut into cubes (about 8 ounces or 225 grams) 
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes 
  • 1 medium zucchini, sliced into rounds (about 1/4 inch thick) 
  • 1 small red onion, cut into chunks 
  • 2 T fresh herbs (such as parsley, basil, or oregano), chopped 
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges, for serving 
  • Olive oil 
  • Salt and pepper to taste 
  • Wooden or metal skewers (if using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes before grilling) 


Prepare the skewers: 

  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. 
  2. Thread the halloumi cheese cubes, cherry tomatoes, zucchini slices, and red onion chunks onto skewers, alternating between the ingredients. 

Grill the skewers: 

  1. Brush the skewers with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. 
  2. Grill the skewers, turning occasionally, until the halloumi cheese is golden brown and the vegetables are tender, about 5-7 minutes. 

Finish and serve: 

  1. Remove the skewers from the grill and garnish with the chopped fresh herbs. 
  2. Serve hot with lemon wedges on the side for squeezing over the skewers.
