  • 200 grams halloumi cheese slice halloumi lengthwise into 1 inch strips
  • 4 oz crushed pork rind crumbs I used dill flavoured pork rinds
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp paprika
  • 1 cup olive oil for frying, depending on your pan size you may need more or less


  • Pat your halloumi dry
  • Cut your halloumi into 6 strips as in the video above
  • Scramble 2 eggs in a bowl
  • Crush the pork rinds, I used a blender, then place in a bowl
  • Dip your halloumi stick in the egg first
  • Coat in the crushed pork rinds
  • Dip again in the egg
  • Coat once again with the crushed pork rinds
  • Place each on a dish with wax paper or parchment
  • Use a shallow pan and fill with about 1 inch of olive oil
  • Turn your stovetop element to medium/low
  • Once hot enough, place a halloumi stick into the oil
  • After 1 minute or so, use two forks to flip the halloumi and brown on each side.
  • Brown on each side until golden brown.
  • They will brown fast so keep an eye on them and flip before they burn
  • When golden brown to your liking place on a dish lined with paper towel to soak the oil


Enjoy them while they are still warm as the cheese will be nice and melty, otherwise they will firm up again if you let them cool too much.
