  • 3 tbsp jerk seasoning
  • 2 x 250g packs haloumi, each cut into bite-size pieces
  • Olive oil, for brushing

For the coleslaw

  • 3 tbsp light mayonnaise

  2. Sprinkle the jerk seasoning all over the halloumi, brush with olive oil and cook on a hot barbecue or griddle pan for 1-2 minutes each side, until it is slightly charred. Set aside.
  3. Brush each pitta with some olive oil, place on the barbecue or griddle pan and cook, turning, until heated through.
