Grilled Figs with Goat’s Cheese and Prosciutto

Figs are unusual, there’s no denying it. Personally I think cooking with unusual ingredients shows originality and flair and it’s also impressive. Figs are cheap and readily available and this recipe is perfect for a light snack or entrée and will wow the most discerning critic.

Ingredients:
8 Figs
200g Soft goats cheese (approx 25g/1 tbsp per fig)
4-6 Slices of prosciutto (halved lengthways)
Fig Vino Cotto (available at any good deli)
Toothpicks

Hold each fig with your index finger and thumb with the top pointing up. Use a sharp knife to make a crossed incision stopping about 1/3 of the way down the body of the fig, ensuring there is enough space for the goat’s cheese to rest in the fig. Wrap each fig in half a slice of prosciutto and secure with toothpicks. Place on paper lined tray and grill bake in the oven 175 degrees for 5-7mins.

Remove from oven and transfer to serving dish, drizzle with Fig Vino Cotto to finish and serve immediately.
