    Break each block of halloumi along its natural split, then slice each 1/2 into good-sized chunks. Cut the watermelon into equal-sized pieces. Alternately thread the halloumi and watermelon onto the skewers. In a small bowl, mix together the spices with a good pinch of salt, then sprinkle all over the skewers, pressing to stick.
