  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Put the tomatoes on a baking tray, season the cut side, drizzle with ½ tbsp oil and roast for 12-15 mins until soft.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the flour, spices and some black pepper on a plate. Press each side of the halloumi slices into the spiced flour to coat.
  3. Heat the remaining 1 tbsp oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Fry the halloumi for 2-3 mins each side until golden and crisp.
  4. Serve the spiced halloumi with the tomatoes, avocado, lime wedges, toast and chilli relish.

Tip: This makes a great brunch for two on Valentine's Day or on a special occasion, but you can also easily increase this recipe to feed a crowd, just fry the halloumi in batches and keep warm until ready to serve.
