This was my first attempt with these little paprikas – as a matter of fact I haven’t even seen anything similar in stores before. These paprikas are imported from Spain and are called Pimientos de Padron. Nice little delicacies and very quick to make. Good when served on the side of meat or poultry.
We baked the six seen in the picture above, but they really were so small that we could easily have eaten more: 8-10 would have been a sufficient portion for two people.
Halloumi was a leftover piece of cheese, use more if only possible. Halloumi is a soft and salty Cypriot cheese made of goat’s or sheep’s milk and it is an ideal cheese to bake or grill because it doesn’t melt while making it. You can serve it in many ways, but I myself simply prefer it fried.
