I’ve only recently started marinating my halloumi, and found that it absorbs flavours well making it easy to mix up the flavour profile for something a bit different.

One of my favorite marinades is a simple curry spice. I just use a store bought one, mixed with a little olive oil to make a paste, and then brushed onto the halloumi. I usually marinate my halloumi the night before, but it works fine even with a shorter amount of time in the fridge.

This keto dinner recipe makes a great mid week meal when served alongside steamed or roasted veggies. It will serve two as a main dish or up to four served as appetisers.

You'll need just a few ingredients to make this vegetarian keto dinner option. You won't need any salt as halloumi is naturally salty.
