Saganaki with Passionfruit

This is a little twist on everyone's favourite... Saganaki!

Grilled cheeses like saganaki always go well with something sweet so in this recipe passion fruit is used. The thyme gives it a hit of savoury-ness and the sherry vinegar / capers a nice hit of acid. All in all this was a hit!

Serves: 2

Cooking Time: 5 minutes



2 pieces of kefalograviera cheese (saganaki)

2 passion fruit

2 tbl spoon sherry vinegar

1 tsp of capers

small bunch of thyme

1/2 cup flour 

1 cup of olive oil




  1. Cover the saganaki in the flour and shake of excess.
  2. Pour oil in a pan on medium/high add the thyme *it will spit. Place cheese also in pan and flip over once browned.
  3. Remove from pan once both sides are brown and wipe of excess oil by patting with a paper towel.
  4. To serve place cheese on a plate, followed by the thyme from the pan, the sherry vinegar, capers, the halved passionfruit and the honey. Serve immediately.
