Slice the halloumi into 1cm-thick fingers and pat them dry with kitchen paper, then toss in the reserved flour mixture to coat on all sides. One by one, dip each halloumi slice into the batter, then carefully lower into the oil and fry for 2-3 minutes until lightly golden brown and crisp. Drain onto kitchen paper and keep warm in a low oven while you fry the rest. Sprinkle over the cider vinegar followed by the salt. Eat straight away with tartare sauce and extra gherkins.
