Griddled Halloumi with Asparagus, Aubergine and Red Pointy Pepper with a Red Chilli Marinade

This is a really easy meal. Just marinade the halloumi in red chilli pieces and olive oil, griddle all the ingredients and serve.

In the photos below you can see we drained the vegetables on kitchen paper before serving to remove excess oil.

Great served with some fresh crusty bread or rice.
