To plate

1
For the almonds, place the nuts into a large frying pan with a generous drizzle of oil and a generous pinch of sea salt. Toast over a medium heat until the almonds have lightly browned and absorbed the oil
2
Taste and add more seasoning if necessary. Remove from the pan and set aside until required
3
Cut the figs in half and place on an oven tray, cut-side up. Drizzle evenly with honey and dusting of the caster sugar
4
Place the lemon thyme on a board and bruise gently using the back of a knife, then sprinkle over the figs
5
Place the figs under a grill on a very low heat. Heat until the tops of the figs start to soften, swell slightly and absorb the honey and sugar. Remove from the heat and set aside
6
To serve, divide the Gorgonzola into 4 equal portions and place onto plates alongside the figs. Drizzle with some more honey and a dash of balsamic. Garnish with the almonds and a few washed rocket leaves. Serve immediately
