When cooking with tallow or lard, it very important to use a splatter guard. The fat spits and can burn you as well as coating your kitchen.

How to make Keto Halloumi Fries
  1. Slice the halloumi into fries at least 7mm/0.3in thick and sit on a paper towel to dry.
  2. Place the tallow into a large non-stick frying pan and place over medium to high heat. You want the tallow to be around 170C/340F.
  3. Gently add the halloumi pieces, I suggest using a pair of tongs as the tallow will spit hot fat.
  4. Once all the halloumi is added, cover the pan with a splatter guard.
  5. Cook the halloumi for about 2 minutes on each side, until golden brown and crunchy.
  6. Serve with a side of Low Carb Marinara Sauce for dipping.

    • Hi Miriam,

      I don’t recommend butter, as the milk solids will burn before the halloumi gets crispy. You could use tallow, coconut oil, or avocado oil instead.
