BBQ Neema Glazed Fried Halloumi Burger

BBQ Neema glazed fried halloumi burger

Ingredients (serves 2):

1 block of halloumi (thickly sliced)

2 x brioche burger buns

Torn lettuce

Sliced tomatoes 

Handful of Sauerkraut or pickles

Kebab skewers

Neema glaze

2tsp fruity and fiery neema paste

50g honey 

25 ml soy sauce 

1tbsp apple cider vinegar

1tbsp light brown sugar 

250ml hot vegetable stock

1tsp white miso paste

1tbsp tomato purée 

Beetroot Sour Cream

150g cooked beetroot

150ml sour cream

1 clove garlic

1 lemon (squeezed)

1 tsp dijon mustard


Get your bbq going!

Make the glaze – put all the ingredients into a heavy-based saucepan on a high heat (or on the bbq!) and bring to the boil – reduce down to a glaze for 15 minutes or so.

Make the beetroot sour cream – put all the ingredients in a food processor and blitz until the smooth – taste and adjust with salt, pepper, and more lemon if needed.  Chill in the fridge until you’re ready to build your burgers.

Sear your slices of halloumi on the bbq.

Turn over with a bbq spatula and sear the other side.

Once both sides are seared, start brushing the halloumi with the glaze. The heat from the bbq will help it stick and coat the halloumi to make it golden and sticky – yum!

Build your burgers! Start with the bottom bun, then the beetroot sour cream, the lettuce, sliced tomato, glazed halloumi, sauerkraut, and top with the top bun – bbq halloumi heaven!
