Fried figs in Parma ham are a small snack as well as a great addition to salads. They are prepared in an instant and are delicious. They fit well, for example, when laid on arugula leaves and covered with dressing or thick balsamic vinegar.

I found the recipe for fried figs in a ham in the book "Sirocco" by Sabrina Ghayour, I was glad because I had figs and ham, but... one ingredient was missing with the magical name - "zatar".

What is zatar (za'atar, zathar)?
This is an Arabic spice blend containing ground sumac, roasted sesame seeds and "green herbs" (thyme, marjoram, oregano). This time, Marta Dymek and her recipe for zagar on the website Jadłonomia . Thanks Marta!


4 large panties

2 tablespoons of olive oil and more for frying

zest of 1 lemon

1 heaped tablespoon of Zatar


8 slices of Parma ham, cut lengthwise

optional - thick balsamic vinegar


Cut the figs into quarters. Pour olive oil into a bowl, add grated lemon peel, zash, pepper and mix everything carefully. Spread the spicy marinade on the figs from the flesh side. Wrap each quarter with a strip of ham.

Pour a little oil into a hot frying pan and fry the figs in the ham for 1 minute on each side, until the ham is browned. We can pour the fried figs with thick balsamic vinegar and serve immediately.

Enjoy your meal!
