Another simple Pintxos still nothing fancy, nothing groundbreaking, but great tasting with a burst of freshness.
I love fresh figs and I try and find ways of incorporating them into as many dishes as I can. This Pintxo has morphed from a much stronger tasting blue cheese version I first tried, also gorgeous but different.
To make the Pintxo first bake slice the figs in half to create more bite sized Pintxo. Slice up some feta cheese and wrap both with a slice of Serrano. Bake on a tray in the oven at 180 degrees for about 10 minutes until the ham crisps up.
Remove from oven and allow to rest for a moment, place on a slice of baguette cut on the bias and serve immediately. Yum…

Try it your way
I am sure these Pintxo would be just as nice with other fruits too, like the pears in the background of the photo.

I am a self-taught semi-professional chef working in a 300 cover restaurant in Surrey UK. I love trying new things and testing them out with my family. Each recipe is tried and true, family-tested and approved, or sometimes not but you've got to push the boundaries. Inspired by cookbooks, other food blogs, TV chefs, and family recipes.
I try to make practical PintxoTapas recipes available on this site that can bring your family and friends together for an informal, but an amazing adventure into the world of Pintxo. As well as writing, I work on my YouTube channel and with suppliers to produce all sorts of video content, from interviews, how-to guides and recipe guides.
