Expand your choice of easy summer appetizers with this Halloumi Cucumber Kebabs with Peanut Sauce. Add a warm or cold peanut sauce and you'll have a delicious and safe way to serve cheese, without the worrying of it melting in front of your eyes.
Cut the halloumi cheese in small cubes. How large, depends on how many skewers you like to have. Small cubes, more skewers. For a nice effect, have at least 4-5 cubes of cheese and cucumber per skewer.
Wash the cucumber and cut in half. The cut the cucumber in slices, about the same thickness of the halloumi and cut the slices in 4 pieces. Leave the skin on.
Alternate threading the cheese and cucumber onto skewers and set aside. Make sure you spike the cucumbers in the solid part, not in the seedy part.
Add the sesame oil to a saucepan and warm up. Add minced garlic and ginger and cook for a minute. Add peanut butter, soy sauce and brown sugar and mix until smooth. Add warm water until the sauce has reached the thickness you prefer. How much depends on the type of brand of peanut butter you use. Keep warm.
Grill the skewers a few minutes per side. Don't walk away, as it will go fast. You just want the halloumi to show some grill marks. Don't cook longer than absolutely necessary, the cucumber will become soft.
Place the skewers on a plate, drizzle with peanut sauce and serve the rest of the sauce in a bowl.
Wash the spring onions, cut in small rings and sprinkle over the Halloumi Cucumber Kebabs with Peanut Sauce
