Prosciutto Wrapped Figs and Brie with Maple Syrup ❦ Embrulho de Figo Fresco Presunto Queijo Brie
This darlings is simply the sexiest, most decadent, most delicious, appetiser recipe in the world. Figs are one of my favourite fruits. Ripe, sweet and beautiful to look at. If a fruit can be sexy, then figs definitely win. My maternal grandparents are from the Algarve region of Portugal and for 6 years they also lived in Morocco. I can tell you I have eaten a lot of figs. One of my earliest memories while on holiday was eating my grandmother's homemade fig jam. I will have to share her recipe here soon.
With Easter just around the corner and Lent almost over, you're just one fig away from a deliciously, sinful experience. You can substitute the prosciutto for Serrano ham, presunto, pancetta or streaky bacon. I used maple syrup, as I think it works better than honey, but you can use honey if you prefer. I promise you can't go wrong here.
