  • Filo dough (only use about 1-2 sheets, no more or it will be to dry and thick)
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • Hot honey
  • Pistachios


  • Use the smallest cast iron skillet you have or pan sear in a regular skillet, just make sure you get the halloumi crispy before you flip it.
  • Preheat oven according to filo package. Thaw dough and pull out 2-3 sheets
  • Slice halloumi into 1 inch by 3-4 inch thick rectangles. With a knife, slice dough to be the width of your halloumi.
  • Lay out sheets on a clean board and whisk egg wash in a bowl. Brush dough with egg wash. Add a piece of halloumi to the bottom of dough and wrap. Using your finger, dab ends with egg wash to coat and cover halloumi in the dough.
  • Add butter to a small hot cast iron skillet and then add your wrapped halloumi. Repeat with 3-4 pieces. Make sure they are hugged next to each other.
  • After 2-3 min or when the halloumi has browned on the outside, give it a flip and cook for another 2 min. When browned on both sides, drizzle hot honey and chopped pistachios over top. Serve hot. Enjoy!
