BBQ figs, mozzarella and Parma ham


  • 150g buffalo mozzarella
  • 6 fresh figs
  • 6 slices Parma ham
  • 3 plum tomatoes
  • 6 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • Small bag of salad leaves
  • Vegetable oil, for brushing


How to make BBQ figs, mozzarella and parma ham

1. Drain the mozzarella, pat dry on kitchen paper and cut into 6 pieces. Cut each fig in half lengthways. Sandwich a piece of mozzarella between 2 fig halves. Sit on a slice of Parma ham and wrap the Parma ham up around the fig to completely encase it. Repeat to make 6 in all.
2. Cut the tomatoes in half and scoop out the seeds. Cut the flesh into small dice and set aside. Whisk the olive oil and balsamic vinegar together and season well. Divide the salad leaves between 6 plates and scatter with the chopped tomatoes.
3. Brush the cooking grate with a little oil. Barbecue the figs directly over a low heat for 8-10 minutes until the ham just starts to crisp underneath and the cheese has begun to melt. Put a wrapped fig in the centre of each plate and drizzle with the balsamic dressing. Serve immediately, while the cheese is still warm.
