Halloumi fritters with zucchini - Melty cheese fritters, a light onion yoghurt dressing with nutty pearl barley and crispy salad.
1 Roughly grate the zucchinis, toss with 1 tsp salt and place in a colander for 10 minutes. Squeeze out as much liquid as you can with your hands.

2. Place barley in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes, or until tender but still firm. Drain and rinse briefly.

3. Peel and finely chop shallots. Sauté in a small pan with 2 tbsp olive oil for 2 minutes over medium heat. Add 1/2 tsp cumin then transfer to a bowl. Add yoghurt, 2 tbsp finely chopped parsley, 1 tsp white wine vinegar, salt and pepper to taste.

4. Roughly grate halloumi and chop spring onions. Combine with zucchini, crushed garlic, 1 egg and 150g flour. Season with salt and pepper. Form into 8 patties. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a large frypan over medium heat and cook fritters until golden on both sides.

5. Slice apple and halve cherry tomatoes. Toss with rinsed lettuce leaves and chick pea sprouts. Drizzle with 1 tbsp olive oil and 1/2 tbsp vinegar.

6. Serve haloumi fritters with barley, sauce and salad.

When cooking the patties, be sure they are well cooked before turning, keep the heat to medium to allow them to cook through without burning.
