Lamb and Halloumi Tacos

Earlier this week I made Lamb Souvlaki with Grilled Halloumi Cheese and Greek Salad. Since my ground lamb comes in one-pound packages, there was a lot left over. Already seasoned with cumin and cayenne pepper, it was a quick, easy meal for round two: lamb tacos.

Really, this meal is pretty close to the souvlaki I already made; it’s the delivery that’s changed. Instead of using a fork and knife to wade through the lettuce and Greek salad, I wrapped everything up in a tortilla, just like I’d eat a Mexican taco. My favorite local tortilleria is Las Brazas.

You just fry the halloumi as in the souvlaki recipe above.

Warm the tortillas; then add the lamb and cheese.

Mix together some chopped tomatoes, chopped green or red onion, oregano, and mint with olive oil, salt, and lemon juice.

Cucumber also goes well with this mixture.

Fold and serve!

  1. I discovered halloumi a few years ago as I moved to Cyprus, never heard of it before. But straight away I fell in love with that delicious cheese that is so versatile and gives its special note to so many dishes. Very often we try new halloumi recipes and there is not one week since then, that we won’t have at least one meal with halloumi, not to speak abou BBQs, where having halloumi is a must.

    • I totally agree, Piedro. Halloumi is a unique cheese with a special flavor. I love it with lamb and wish I could get it more easily where I live. You are lucky to live in Cyprus!
