Recipe from Chef Gabriele Riva




Fresh Mission Figs
Smoked Organic Bacon
Black pepper

4-6 pieces
4-6 pieces

  1. Wash and peel off skin of the mission figs, taking care to peel if figs are a touch ripe.
  2. Select small or medium size figs that are neither too hard nor too soft; size should be suitable for small bites and canapes.
  3. Wrap each peeled mission fig with a slice of bacon.
  4. Using a tooth pick or small bamboo skewer, pierce through bacon and fig to prevent bacon from unravelling and detaching from fig.
  5. Arrange on Silpat®.
  6. Bake at 400 F for about 15 minutes or until bacon is crisp and caramelized.
  7. Transfer to plate and remove the skewers, finish with a touch of ground pepper on each fig wrapped with bacon.

    Tip: Soak skewers prior in water for 20 minutes, this will prevent the skewer from burning in the oven.
