Grilled fresh figs with crème fraîche
Preheat the grill to high. Lightly butter a shallow flameproof dish, large enough to accommodate the figs in a single layer.
Cut the figs into quarters without cutting through the base, and gently open each one out a little. Spoon a dollop of crème fraîche into the centre of each fig.
Sprinkle the sugar evenly between the figs. Put the figs in the prepared dish, and put the hot grill for 2 minutes or until the sugar has melted and the crème fraîche starts to run. Serve immediately.
