Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
12 small figs, halved
olive oil, for drizzling
12 thin slices jamón ibérico, halved crossways
flat-leaf parsley leaves, for garnish

Shortcrust pastry

Quantity Ingredient
300g plain flour
120g cold unsalted butter, cubed
pinch salt
2 egg yolks

Pepperberry mayonnaise

Quantity Ingredient
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 teaspoons dijon mustard
300ml vegetable oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon ground pepperberry, (see note)
sea salt

Method

  1. To make the pastry, place the flour, butter and salt in a food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add the yolks and 80 ml cold water and pulse again until just starting to come together. Knead on a floured surface to bring together, shape into a disc, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. Meanwhile, to make the mayonnaise, whisk the egg, egg yolk and mustard together in a large bowl. While whisking, add the oil in a thin continuous stream until it is all added and the mayonnaise is thick. Whisk in the lemon juice, pepperberry and season with salt. Cover closely with plastic wrap and refrigerate until required.
  3. Preheat the oven to 190°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Roll out the pastry to 5 mm thick and, using a 10 cm round cutter, cut out 24 circles. Place a fig half, cut-side up, on each circle. Bring the pastry up around the fig to encase and pleat the edges to secure. Place on the trays and drizzle with the oil. Bake for 15–20 minutes or until golden.
  4. To serve, top each galette with a slice of jamón, a dollop of mayonnaise and garnish with the parsley leaves.

Note

  • Ground pepperberry is available from specialty Indigenous food suppliers. The mayonnaise makes 1½ cups and will keep refrigerated for 2–3 days
