Ricotta Figs and Macadamia Nuts


  • 4 large or 8 small figs

  • 1 tablespoon ricotta cheese per fig

  • ¼ ~ ½ teaspoon Lemon Myrtle (*Please see notes)

  • ½ cup grape nectar

  • Macadamia nut pieces (toasted) for garnish


  • 1.

    Trim the fat end of each fig so that the fruit stands up-right.

  • 2.

    Cut the thin end with a cross to open up the figs but still keeping them in one piece.

  • 3.

    Mix the Lemon Myrtle into the ricotta, preferably at least 2 hours before serving as this allows the flavours to really penetrate the cheese.

  • 4.

    Place a tablespoonful of the prepared cheese in each cross cut fig. Grill until the figs are warm and the cheese just bubbles.

  • 5.

    Plate up the figs, drizzle with the grape nectar and garnish with the toasted macadamia nut pieces.

  • 6.

    Serve immediately with a strong coffee for that hint of bitterness to add to the complexity of taste.
