    Share this recipe:

    This Middle Eastern–inspired ice cream sundae is a cool way to end a meal of grilled kebabs on a hot summer night, but instead of chocolate sauce and caramel, try topping your ice cream with grilled fresh figs. Just brush them with a mixture of honey and fragrant orange blossom water and grill until caramelized. Arrange over scoops of ice cream and sprinkle with toasted pistachios and a drizzle of additional honey for a fresh take on a classic treat.

    Special equipment: You will need a pastry brush for this recipe.

    What to buy: Orange blossom water is available at many Middle Eastern and ethnic food shops, and also online.

    Instructions

    1. 1Heat a grill pan or outdoor grill to high (about 450°F to 550°F). Meanwhile, whisk the honey, water, and orange blossom water in a small bowl until combined; set aside.
    2. 2When the grill is ready, place the figs on a baking sheet and brush both sides with the honey mixture; reserve the remaining mixture for drizzling over the sundaes. Place the figs on the grill cut-side down (reserve the baking sheet). Cover the grill and cook until grill marks appear on the bottom, about 2 minutes.
    3. 3Using a flat metal spatula, flip the figs, cover the grill, and cook until grill marks appear on the second side and the figs begin to soften, about 1 to 2 minutes more. Remove the figs to the reserved baking sheet.
    4. 4To serve, scoop the desired amount of ice cream into 6 bowls. Divide the figs among the bowls, sprinkle with the pistachios, and drizzle with the remaining honey mixture. Serve immediately.
