Marinated figs with prosciutto, mozzarella & basil
- Preparation and cooking time
- Total time
- Ready in 45 minutes - 1 hour
- Makes 16
These cute bites are a sophisticated step up from the old favourite of cheese and pineapple on sticks
- STEP 1
Cut the figs into 16 wedges and sit them in a non-metallic bowl. Mix together the oil and vinegar, then pour it over the figs. Season well with salt and pepper, and leave to marinate at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
- STEP 2
When the figs have marinated, thread each wedge on to a wooden skewer with some prosciutto, mozzarella and a basil leaf. The order in which you thread them is entirely up to you.
- STEP 3
Once you have made all 16, sit them on a plate and drizzle over the remaining marinade. Serve at room temperature rather than straight from the fridge, so all the flavours are at their best.
