Halloumi - For Grilling or Frying - Pasteurized Sheeps Milk
Super delicious, not salty ! Worth it !
I have to admit upfront, this cheese from FFRM is more expensive than buying it from Whole Foods, but they don't always have it in stock. I love Halloumi -- it's more dense & not as salty or crumbly as Feta. But the saltiness & firmness of Halloumi make it perfect for making cheese sticks like the ones you order as restaurant appetizers. You can literally cook it on a grill over an open flame & it won't melt! I don't have a proper grill so I had to cook it on my stovetop in a saucepan. I made this grilled Halloumi & watermelon sandwich a few weeks ago (minus the mint leaves). It's not 100% Carnivore but it was totally AWESOME!
I'm not sure how to review this as Frankie stated in a YouTube video they were going to switch brands of Halloumi due to the sodium content. I'm a bit puzzled as I didn't find it overly salty - for sure the local Feta you find in our grocery stores is saltier.
This review is for the Atalanta brand that I received. The best way to describe it is if Cheese Curds and Mozzarella had a baby in block form. Because of the high melting point you can cut these into thick slices, heat them in a pan, and top your food with it. It has the taste of Mozzarella but the "waxiness" of Cheese Curds if that makes any sense.
I won't be reordering because I need something that will slow me down like Blue Cheese for instance. This entire package was gone in under 15 minutes.
