Sweet Figs!

It’s fig time again! We’re lucky of having a ‘fresh from the tree’ fig supplier who comes knocking at our door as soon as the season starts. There’s nothing sweeter and juicer than Maltese grown figs. Having the supply in hand, I decided on a light refreshing antipasto for today’s lunch. Follow the following instructions and you cannot fail, it’s all so simple!

Mozzarella and figs antipasto

Mozzarella and figs antipasto

Antipasto: Mozzarella & figs

Ingredients for 4 persons:

  • 1 x 250gr buffalo mozzarella
  • 8 small figs  (if the figs are large you can reduce figs & all other ingredients to 4)
  • 8 slices thinly sliced prosciutto San Daniele (or parma ham)
  • 8 basil leaves
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt & pepper

Slice the buffalo mozzarella into 8 pieces, wash and halve the figs. Place the mozzarella slice first then top with the prosciutto, the basil leaf and finish off with the figs. Dress with some extra virgin olive oil and salt & pepper. Serve with crusty bread.

    Great step-by-step photo session. Grilling piazzs is one of our favorite things to do as well. Love how creative you can be with flavorings. It also makes for a great party. Guests will love making their own special piazzs. A couple of our favorites are: corn, cilantro and blue cheese (YEP) and another is Prosciutto, black truffles and an egg.
