Harissa Halloumi Potatoes

A crispy, spicy side dish that could easily be a main course

This is a reasonably quick side dish that could easily be a main course if you wanted something fast and spicy with a bit of texture. About 35 minutes start to finish. Crispy potatoes and halloumi with a soft centre, but slightly crisp at the edges, mixed through with harissa paste - make it as hot as you like!





harissa paste

fresh marjoram - or thyme - or oregano

chives - or spring onions

  • Peel and dice the potatoes

  • Dice the halloumi to roughly the same size as the potatoes

  • Add the potatoes to quite hot oil - not crazy hot, or they'll stick, and you'll get crisp outside and raw inside

  • Add some salt

  • After about 10 minutes add the herbs

  • Turn the potatoes every so often to prevent them sticking, and to crisp up the edges

  • Don't move them too often - you want them to crisp

  • About 15 minutes later, add the halloumi

  • Add a teaspoon or two of harissa, and stir it through

  • It's ready in about 5 minutes

  • Dress with fresh parsley or marjoram leaves
