  • Food processor
  • Griddle pan
  • Bowl
  • Frying pan


For the green salsa:

  • 1 green pepper deseeded and sliced into four
  • 2 large green tomatoes
  • 2 echalion shallots peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 bunch of coriander
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the tacos:

  • 225 g halloumi sliced thickly
  • 4 echalion shallots peeled and sliced in half
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 small tortillas

For the guacamole:

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • To make the salsa, add all of the ingredients (reserving some of the chopped echalion shallots to garnish) to a food processor and pulse to a chunky salsa.
  • Toss the halloumi slices and shallots with the olive oil, cumin, paprika and seasoning. Heat a griddle pan on a medium high heat and cook the halloumi and shallots until charred and cooked through.
  • While they are cooking, make the guacamole. Slice and destone the avocados. Add to a bowl with the rest of the ingredients and roughly mash with a fork.
  • Warm the tortillas through in a dry frying pan.
  • To assemble the tacos, spread each tortilla with a tablespoon of guacamole. Add a few halloumi slices and an echalion half. Top with a generous spoon of the green salsa, and some finely chopped echalion.
