Ingredients

  • Vegetable oil, for the pan
  • 12 ripe figs, halved
  • 6 oz (180g) Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
  • Honey, to serve

Instructions

Lightly oil a ridged grill pan over medium-high heat. Grill the figs, cut-side down, for 4 minutes, or until browned.

When the figs are browned, gently turn them and cook on the other side for 3–4 minutes.

Remove the figs from the pan and place them in a shallow dish. Sprinkle with Gorgonzola, drizzle with honey, and serve immediately.

For a sweet and savory salad, delete the honey and serve the salad with thinly sliced proscuitto and ricotta.
