These Grilled Halloumi and Fig Kabobs are best hot, right off the grill when the cheese is melted and gooey. Serve with Grilled Lamb Chops or Lamb Kabobs and a big Greek Salad.

Grilled Halloumi and Fig Kabobs

Total: 25 minutes
Course: Side Dish

Calories: 136
Servings: 8 kabobs
Halloumi can be a bit tricky to find – keep an eye out for it in the dairy section of your favorite grocery stores.

Ingredients  

  • 8 bamboo skewers
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 4 large Turkish or Black Mission figs quartered
  • 8.8 ounce package Halloumi cheese cut in 16 large pieces

Instructions 

  • Soak bamboo skewers in water for at least 1/2 hour to keep them from burning on the grill. (You could use metal skewers if you like)
  • For the balsamic glaze: pour balsamic vinegar in to a small saucepan and bring to boil. Reduce heat and keep at a low boil, stirring occasionally, until syrupy and reduced by half – about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool. Once cool, transfer to a small bowl, cover and refrigerate.
  • Assemble kabobs by alternately threading two pieces of fig and two pieces of halloumi onto each of 8 skewers. Cover skewers and refrigerate until you’re ready to grill.
  • When you are ready to eat, preheat the grill to 375°F.
  • Grill kabobs 5 minutes per side for a total of 10 minutes, or until halloumi has grill marks and figs are caramelized. Remove from heat and brush with balsamic glaze. Serve.
