  • 1 pack haloumi (250g), cut into 8 cubes
  • 1 large red onion, cut into 12 segments, like an orange
  • 1 large courgette, cut into 12 x 2cm slices

Jerk Spice Rub

  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 2 tsp ground allspice
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ¼ tsp cayenne
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tsp dark brown sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

You Will Also Need

  • 4 bamboo kebab skewers (soaked in water)
  • olive oil for basting


  • Make the spice rub by mixing all the ingredients together to form a paste.
  • Place the haloumi and vegetables into a large mixing bowl and gently rub in the jerk spice paste and leave to marinate for an hour.
  • Thread the vegetables and haloumi onto kebab skewers. Thread the courgette slices horizontally so that they lie flat on the grill.
  • Brush with a little olive oil.
  • Barbecue or grill turning often, and baste with a little olive oil if they stick, until the haloumi is golden and the vegetables are beginning to char.
  • Serve with black beans and rice.


Jerk seasoning (the origin of the name is obscure) comes from Jamaica. It is a dry blend of spices used as a rub or made into a fiery marinade. The spice mix varies with the cook, but the primary spice is Jamaican pimento (all spice).

The jerk spice rub can be made the day before which allows the flavour to develop.

Make it vegan

For vegan kebabs use plain tofu instead of haloumi.
