Chorizo and Halloumi Cheese Skewers

Edited on 13th of April:

Another inspiration from Donna Hay Mag. This time, this was from the recent issue "50 fast dinners" (I think it was March?). A simple side dish that our guests loved. She calls it the "Squeaky cheese" -Halomi of course! Certainly, I love this when it is grilled up and served with a side of lemon. Ahh.. simple eats in life!

Halloumi Cheese is made of a mixture of goats and sheep's milk. It has a different texture to other cheese and could hold its shape when grilled (higher melting point). I don't think it resembles any other cheese- except that it is a hard cheese and not a soft one like brie. 

Chorizo and Halmomi Skewers (made around 6)
1 Chorizo sliced
around 50 grams of Halomi Cheese chopped in cubes.

bamboo skewers soaked in hot water.

Skewer these babies up, grill them and serve with lemon! Simple as!
