The perfect canapé recipe: How to make the very best Halloumi Sesame Bites

Halloumi Sesame Bites

Whatever the formality of the event, preparing decorative nibbles are a great way to keep your guests happy and add that extra personal touch.

Below is the perfect canapé recipe for your next dinner party. These Halloumi Sesame Bites are delicious and only take four, simple steps. They’re also suitable for vegetarians!

Halloumi Sesame Bites


2 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 egg
1/3 cup sesame seeds
200g halloumi cheese, cut into cubes
750ml vegetable oil
1tbsp honey


Scoop flour onto a plate and beat the egg in a shallow bowl. Pour sesame seeds onto a second plate.

Coat the halloumi cubes in flour, shaking off any excess. Then dip in the egg, and roll in sesame seeds until evenly coated.

Pour oil into a large pot until it reaches ½ inch up the side of the pot. Leave over medium heat and then add a third of the halloumi cubes – be sure not to crowd the pot!

Cook the halloumi cubes, turning them frequently, until the sesame seeds turn golden-brown. This can take from 30 seconds up to a minute.

Remove the cubes and spread them out on a paper towel-lined baking sheet.

Repeat until all the cubes are finished.

Warm the honey in the microwave. This should only take about 30 seconds.

Just before serving, drizzle the halloumi cubes with warm honey.

Serve with cocktail sticks to avoid making a mess, and enjoy!
