Serves 4 as a starter
125ml (½ cup) light olive oil
500g haloumi, cut into 8 slices
235g (⅔ cup) honey
4 figs, halved lengthways
6g (½ cup) za’atar leaves or oregano leaves
100g walnuts, lightly toasted
Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the haloumi and cook for 2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.
Remove any excess oil from the pan, leaving the haloumi in the pan, and add the honey. Increase the heat to high and allow the honey to reduce slightly. It will become sticky and glossy. Add the figs and cook until warmed through.
Arrange the haloumi and figs on a platter, scatter with the za’atar or oregano and the walnuts, and spoon over the warm honey. Serve.
