Tips to make the best-grilled figs with Orange sauce

1. You can either cut an X on the fig or cut it in half while grilling, but make sure that the figs are smoky and properly grilled before you take them off the grill.

2. For the ginger sauce, use fresh, juicy ginger so that the flavour is enhanced. An old piece of ginger has less juice and more fibre and is not ideal to make the ginger sauce. 

3. If you want to add the texture of finely grated ginger to the grilled figs, you can finely chop or grate the fresh ginger instead of extracting the juice. While the juice only provides taste and flavour, grated ginger adds a crunchy, juicy texture to the figs. 


1. How to choose figs for this recipe?

Contrary to the misconception that the ripeness of figs can be determined by their colour, ripe figs can be identified accurately by feeling them.

A ripe fig is plump and soft when you slightly squeeze it and it also has a sweet fragrance. 

2. Can I freeze the leftover grilled figs with orange sauce? 

I would recommend that you don’t freeze the figs.

It changes the taste, flavour and texture of the figs. 

3. Is there a substitute for the ginger sauce?

Yes, you can either use ginger sauce or whip up some mascarpone with the ginger sauce and top the grilled figs liberally with this cream. 

4. How do I know that the figs are grilled well?

You will know that the figs are done when you see that it begins to caramelize and turn smoky, dark and rich.
