  • Grill or griddle


  • 1 8 oz paneer or halloumi cheese sliced into thick sticks (about 0.78 x 3-inch or 2 x 8 cm)
  • Vegetable oil to brush
  • Chimichurri sauce molasses (black treacle), or simply honey (which is much milder than molasses)


  • If using paneer cheese, taste it first. If necessary, sprinkle salt on top of the sticks after grilling or brine in salty water and pat the sticks dry before grilling because paneer can be quite low in salt. If using halloumi cheese, soak sticks in cold water for about 30-60 minutes and then pat dry before grilling because halloumi is quite salty.
  • Grill cheese sticks on a griddle (or grill) brushed with vegetable oil at medium to medium-high heat for about 2 minutes per side or until grilling marks can be seen.
