Make a cross cut in the top of each fig then put into a snug fitting shallow ovenproof dish. Drizzle the honey and olive oil into the top cuts then bake in a preheated oven, 180°C / 350°F / Gas Mark 4 for 5-10 minutes, check after five minutes. If the fruit are very ripe they will be warm and ready, if a little under-ripe they will take three-five minutes more.
Spoon the honey juices from the base of the dish over the figs then sprinkle with torn mint leaves and serve hot or cold.
Tip: Incredibly quick and easy to put together, serve warm for breakfast with a spoonful of Greek yogurt drizzled with honey or as part of a meze selection with cheese, cold ham, salad and warm bread
