8 thin slices Serrano ham 1 Mix the cream cheese with three-quarters of the crumbled walnuts. Spread generously over the bread.
2 Open your figs by cutting a cross at the pointed end and opening them out like a flower with your fingers. Drizzle olive oil into a pan over a medium heat and add the brown sugar. Add the figs and fry the bases only, without turning them – watch that the caramel that forms in the pan doesn’t burn. Add the sherry vinegar and turn off the heat.
4 Put the hot figs over the toasts and drizzle with hot vinaigrette from the pan. Top with a good drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, a pinch of salt and the slices of Serrano ham. Sprinkle with the remaining walnuts. 459 CALS PER SERVING 26G FAT 7G SAT FAT 38G CARBS
