半隻 新鮮指天椒 ½ a fresh red chilli

On a chopping board, cut the halloumi into 2cm cubes, then add to a large mixing bowl.

3. 黃甜椒垂直開半, 用茶匙或刀把莖梗,囊和籽去掉. 然後切成塊2厘米大小, 放入大碗裏.
Carefully cut the pepper in half from top to bottom, then trim away the stalk, seeds and any white pith (you can use teaspoon to do this), then slice into 2cm pieces and add to the bowl.

4. 翠玉瓜垂直開半, 再切成半厘米厚的半圓形片. 連同洗淨的車厘茄放入大碗.
Cut the courgette in half lengthways, then cut into half-moon slices, roughly ½cm thick, then add to the bowl along with the tomatoes.

5. 摘去乾或爛掉的薄荷葉,洗淨及瀝乾. 將薄荷葉切成細碎, 放入大碗. 莖梗不要.
Pick the mint leaves onto a board and finely chop them, discarding the stalks.

6. 把指天椒的囊和籽去掉, 然後切成細碎. 處理時要小心灼傷皮膚、眼睛.
Carefully deseed and finely chop the chilli, if using.

7. 用刨絲器將刨下檸檬皮蓉, 連同薄荷葉碎, 指天椒碎 (不喜辣可不加) 和 2湯匙橄欖油, 放入大碗.
Use a microplane to finely grate the lemon zest onto a board, then add to the bowl along with the mint leaves, chilli (if using), and 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

8. 加入鮮磨黑胡椒調味, 並和其他材料撈均.
Season with a pinch of pepper, then mix well to coat.

9. 用燒烤高火預熱焗爐.
Preheat the grill to high.

10. 給焗盤上一層薄油備用.
Lightly grease a baking tray with oil, then put aside.

11. 將已調味的哈羅米芝士,黃甜椒,翠玉瓜和車厘茄用預先浸透的竹籤相間地串起來.
Thread and divide the halloumi cubes, cherry tomatoes, pepper and courgette pieces between the skewers.

12. 把蔬菜串放在已抹油的焗盤上, 再放入焗爐燒烤至芝士成金黃色及蔬菜變軟身, 中途翻至另一面繼續燒烤至兩面金黃色及蔬菜熟透. 大概需時10-12分鐘.
Place onto the greased tray and cook under the grill for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the cheese is golden and the veg are soft, turning halfway through.

13. 配上新鮮蔬菜沙律和彼得包之類的薄麵包享用.
Serve with a fresh green salad and some flatbreads or pittas.
