e tempo del fig!
I love grilled figs, and an adventure to the Arthur Avenue Market in the Bronx yesterday reminded me just how much... I picked up a box of fresh, perfectly-ripe beauties, along with some cured meats--primarily prosciutto....
To grill the figs:
Wash and cut in half lengthwise.
Coat a grill or grill pan with olive oil--just enough so the figs don't stick.
Place figs cut side down on hot grill until there are nice grill marks on the flesh--but don't allow to get too mushy. Flip and grill on the skin side until the flesh is hot and juicy.
I like to wrap them in a little prosciutto... Yummy!!!
