A Fresh Delicious Party Appetizer
Prosciutto is a coveted ingredient by many chefs. The buttery saltiness of this cured Italian meat melts in your mouth and adds a rich flavor whenever used. Paired with fresh figs, Parmigiano Reggiano, and our delicious Gran Riserva Balsamic vinegar and you get a delightful appetizer, fit for the most elegant dinner party. The fruity honey sweetness of the figs and bright sweetness of our balsamic vinegar reduction contrast the rich, meaty flavor of the Prosciutto Di Parma and Parmigiano Reggiano. We hope you and your loved ones enjoy this dish as much as we do.
Recipe Servings: 12 portions
Recipe Preparation Time: 25 minutes
Recipe Cook Time: 5 minutes
½ lb of Prosciutto di Parma, thinly sliced
½ lb of aged Parmigiano Reggiano, cut into 12 pieces
12 fresh Black Mission figs, washed
1 cup Lucini® Gran Riserva Balsamico
Let the Parmigiano rest at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Slice each fig lengthwise, but do not cut in half. Place a piece of the cheese inside the fig. Wrap each stuffed fig with a slice or two of prosciutto and secure with a toothpick. Repeat 12 times and place on a serving tray.
Pour the balsamic vinegar in a small sauce pot over high heat. Whisk briskly, even prior to boiling. Once it starts boiling, keep whisking constantly to prevent burning. Continue until the sauce reduces by half and is of a syrupy consistency.
Using a spoon, drizzle the reduction over each stuffed fig.
