Can't bring yourself to make the same old chicken skewers again? Pick up a copy of Posh Kebabs, a new cookbook by recipe developer Rosie Reynolds, and refresh your repertoire with awesome and budget-friendly recipes for the delicious kebabs enjoyed around the world. These fig and halloumi skewers are a colorful way to keep your kebabs vegetarian, without grilling vegetables yet again. 

These skewers can go either way: sweet enough to serve as a dessert or savory enough to serve with piles of garlicky herb labneh and flatbreads for a light lunch. However you serve these skewers, make sure the halloumi is still hot and soft and the figs juicy.

Prep Time
Cook Time
  • 8 small, firm, ripe figs
  • 9 ounces halloumi
  • 1 tablespoon clear honey
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped mint
  1. Cut a small cross through each of the figs, making sure you do not cut all the way through to the base. Thread onto 4 small skewers, alternating with halloumi cubes. Transfer to a baking tray.
  2. Preheat the grill to high. Grill the skewers for 3 minutes until the figs are soft and juicy and the halloumi golden in places and hot.
  3. Use a spatula to transfer to serving plates. Drizzle with the honey and sprinkle with the mint.
