Fig and Prosciutto Puff Pastry Tart

Labels: { , , } | © 2019 | | © 2019 |

Bring a standard everyday salad to life with this beautifully balanced tart that combines sweet, juicy figs with salty proscuitto on top of flaky golden puff pastry. With figs in season, there's no better time to try this simple recipe. Drizzle with a fig or raspberry balsamic syrup for an explosion of flavours. Use other greens, like baby arugula or watercress instead of lamb's lettuce if you like. It is perfect for a light lunch or as an appetizer of a dinner party.

  • 275 g Puff pastry sheet
  • 60 g Lamb's lettuce or baby Rocket
  • 1 Belgian endive, leaves separated
  • 3-4 Ripe figs, cut into wedges
  • 6 slice Prosciutto, coarsely torn
  • 1 tbsp Fig or raspberry balsamic glaze
  • 1 tbsp Fresh dill for garnishing
  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F. Take your sheet of puff pastry and unroll. Using a sharp knife carefully score a border about 2cm thick around the edges of the pastry making sure you don’t cut all the way through. This will act as a frame and help to hold the filling in while baking.
  2. Using a fork carefully prick the centre part of the pastry to encourage it not to rise too much. Bake for 20-25 mins or until golden brown and puffed.
  3. Place the pastry on a large serving platter. Top with the lamb's lettuce, Belgian endive, fig wedges, and torn prosciutto. Drizzle with balsamic glaze and garnish with fresh dill. | © 2019 | | © 2019 |

I've made something very similar to this with goat's cheese instead of the proscuitto. It makes for a quick and delicious meal and a nice way to use figs.
