  • 85g unsalted cashews roughly crushed
  • 75g sultanas
  • 50g mayonnaise
  • 250g crème fraîche
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 x 250g blocks of halloumi
  • 2 tbsp apricot jam
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 20g fresh rocket leaves
  • Salt and pepper
Place the sultanas in a bowl. Cover them in hot water and leave for 10 minutes.Drain and set aside.
Roughly crush the cashews with a rolling pin and set aside.
Cut both halloumi blocks in half down the long side, to give you 4 blocks of half the original thickness.
Heat a drizzle of oil in a large, non-stick frying pan. Fry the halloumi for around 5 minutes on a medium heat, turning over regularly until golden brown and crisp on both sides.
Place the halloumi on a chopping board. Use a heavy knife to cut the halloumi into smallish pieces, so it resembles shredded chicken. Set the halloumi aside.
Fry the onion in a little oil for 5 minutes on a medium heat until soft. Stir in the apricot jam for the last minute. Stir until it dissolves and coats the onion.
Mix the mayonnaise and crème fraiche together in a bowl. Add the onions and melted jam, milk, lemon juice, curry powder and season with salt and pepper. Stir until you have a smooth sauce.
Place the halloumi, rocket, sultanas and cashews in a serving bowl. Use your hands to mix, until all the ingredients are combined.
Pour over the sauce and stir until coated.
Finish with chopped parsley, a few crushed cashews and some ground pepper.
