Honey-fried feta

  • Preparation time: 10 minutes
  • Cooking time: 5 minutes
  • Total time: 15 minutes

Serves: 4-6


300ml olive oil
2 x 200g packs feta
75g plain flour
3 eggs, beaten
4 tbsp clear honey
6 figs, quartered


1. Heat the oil in a medium frying pan to about 175˚C (or when a piece of bread sizzles gently when dropped in). Cut each block of feta in half or into thirds and dust each piece with flour to cover completely. Dip 2 pieces into the beaten egg, then fry in the hot oil until golden on both sides (about 1 minute per side).

2. Carefully remove the feta and drain on kitchen paper, then repeat with the remaining pieces. Serve immediately, with the honey and figs.
