The ideal pairing of mushroom and halloumi served with crisp ciabatta to add the perfect crunch, which is then moistened by a easy olive oil based dressing sure to pack flavour.
- 4 large flat mushrooms
- 250g halloumi, sliced into 1cm thick pieces
- 2 ciabattas, sliced open
For the dressing
- 4 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
- ½ tsp dried oregano
- 3 tbsp chopped coriander
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 red chilli, finely chopped
- 2 tsp capers
- Make the dressing up and set aside.
- Heat a griddle pan until very hot, and fry the mushrooms first. Add to the pan closed cup side first. Turn after about 5 mins (liquid will have gathered around the stalk). Fry on other side for 5 mins, then keep warm while you cook the halloumi until black marks appear on both sides.
- Toast the bread and spoon a little oil on all pieces of ciabatta to moisten. Top with slices halloumi and whole mushrooms. Fill the mushroom cup with dressing and drizzle the rest liberally.
