Haloumi is a firm, sheep-milk cheese with a minty, salty flavour; it does not break down when cooked, however, it should be eaten while still warm as it becomes tough and rubbery on cooling. This recipe is perfect for cooking on the barbecue when entertaining friends or family ­ serve with a couscous salad for a quick and tasty dinner. You need to soak eight bamboo skewers in water for least 20 minutes before using to prevent them from scorching during cooking.
