Green asparagus with grilled or pan-fried halloumi cheese

Green asparagus and halloumi skewers are a barbecue proposal for vegetarians and for those carnivores who already have enough sausages, steaks and hamburgers.


Skewers can also be prepared at home on a grill pan, in a regular pan or in the oven.

The dish is simple and quick to prepare. We serve skewers hot because halloumi cheese is rubbery when it cools down. We can blanch the asparagus briefly before grilling, but we don't have to. If we like crispy, al dente asparagus, we skip blanching.

INGREDIENTS

Skewers

  • 1 bunch green asparagus
  • 200g halloumi cheese
  • 1 lemon
  • mint leaves

PICKLE

  • chilli pepper - 1-2 cm fresh or a pinch of dried
  • several mint leaves
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

EXECUTION

  1. Green asparagus is blanched. In a pot, boil salted water, clean the asparagus and cut off the hard ends. Prepare a bowl with cold water and ice cubes. Put the asparagus into the boiling water and cook for about 3 minutes, then remove them using a slotted spoon and quickly put them into the ice water.
  2. Cut the halloumi cheese into pieces so that they are of similar thickness and length as the asparagus.
  3. Thread the asparagus alternately with the halloumi cheese on skewers. If we use wooden sticks and plan to grill outdoors, it is worth dipping them in water for 15 minutes so that they do not catch fire.
  4. Finely chop the fresh chili pepper and mint leaves, add olive oil and lemon juice. Coat the skewers with the marinade and set aside for about half an hour. Then we grill. The grilling time depends on whether you grill in a pan or on an outdoor grill. On a hot grill pan, about 2 minutes on each side is enough.
  5. Serve with lemon wedges and mint leaves. Lemon pieces can also be briefly grilled.
