Thinly slice the red onion (see ingredients). In a small bowl, combine the red onion, white wine vinegar and a good pinch of sugar and salt. Add just enough water to cover the onion completely and stir to coat. Set aside.
Cut the haloumi into 1cm-thick strips. Place the haloumi slices in a medium bowl of cold water and set aside to soak for 5 minutes. Thinly slice the cucumber into thin sticks. Finely chop the tomato. Finely shred the cos lettuce. Combine the tomato and cos lettuce in a large bowl and set aside. TIP: Soaking the haloumi helps mellow out the saltiness.
Pat dry the haloumi. In a shallow bowl, combine the Aussie spice blend and a good pinch of pepper. In a second shallow bowl, whisk the egg. In a third shallow bowl, place the panko breadcrumbs. Dip the haloumi into the Aussie spice blend, then into the egg, and finally in the panko breadcrumbs. Transfer to a plate.
Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat with enough olive oil to coat the base. When the oil is hot, cook the haloumi until golden brown, 2 minutes each side. Transfer the haloumi to a plate lined with paper towel. TIP: Turn the haloumi carefully to stop the crumb from breaking!
Heat the mini flour tortillas in a sandwich press or microwave for 10 second bursts, or until warmed through. Add pickling liquid (1 tsp for 2 people / 2 tsp for 4 people), a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper to the salad and toss to combine. Drain the pickled onion.
Bring everything to the table to serve. Build your tacos by spreading smokey aioli over the tortillas and topping with some cos lettuce salad, cucumber, haloumi and pickled red onion.
