Method

  1. Halve the figs lengthways and put them, cut side down, without oil, in a hot griddle pan (or heavy-based frying pan) for 1 minute until charred. Sprinkle with balsamic vinegar and salt and black pepper to taste, and, while still warm, wrap each half in a little piece of prosciutto.
  2. Serve as canapés or a starter, garnished with shaved parmesan and fresh mint or rocket leaves.

I followed the recipe and it was ok but that was all. The figs I had were in perfect condition because they are in season where I live so I feel like I wasted them because I didn't enjoy the dish like I expected to. Perhaps I need to change my balsamic....I can't work out why I didn't seem to get the right balance between sweetness of the figs and the acidity of the balsamic when this combination of ingredients should be perfect. Will try again!

As ever I didnt follow the recipe to the letter! I wrapped the figs in parma ham, popped onto a baking tray, drizzled with honey and olive oil and a good sprinkle of salt and pepper and cooked in the oven 190c for about 10 mins and they were just divine, melt in the mouth divine!
