- 42.4g (16.2g saturated)
- 60g (5.9g sugars)
- 250g block halloumi, cut into 6 x 1cm slices
- 1 medium free-range egg, beaten
- 50g plain flour
- 50g panko breadcrumbs
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 6 thick slices white bread
- 1 little gem lettuce, torn
- Sliced gherkins (optional)
For the tartare sauce
- 60g mayonnaise (about 4 tbsp)
- ¼ red onion, very finely chopped
- 1 tsp capers, rinsed
- Juice ½ lemon
- ½ small bunch dill, finely chopped
- Heat the oven to 180ºC fan/gas 6. Pat the halloumi dry with kitchen paper. Put the egg, flour and breadcrumbs in 3 separate shallow bowls. Dip the slices in the flour, then the egg and finally coat in the breadcrumbs. Arrange on a baking tray lined with baking paper, drizzle with olive oil, then bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden and crisp.
- Meanwhile, make the tartare sauce by mixing the mayonnaise, red onion, capers, lemon and dill. Spread the tartare on 3 slices of the bread. Top each with lettuce, gherkins (if you like) and 2 pieces of halloumi, then sandwich with the remaining slices of bread. Eat straightaway.
Easy swaps: If you prefer, swap halloumi for chunky pieces of sustainable white fish or salmon for a superior fish finger sarnie.
