Ingredients

Directions

Special equipment: two 24-cup mini muffin tins and a piping bag, optional

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Arrange the salami slices over the cups of a 24-cup mini muffin tin (slightly overlapping is fine), then top with a second mini muffin tin, pressing the salami slices into the cups and compressing them. Flip the muffin tins over and put the whole thing on a baking sheet upside down. Top with a cast-iron pan for more compression. Bake for about 12 minutes, then remove the cast-iron pan carefully. Bake for an additional 12 minutes. Let the salami cups cool completely, dabbing any rendered fat with paper towels.

Using a hand mixer, whip the ricotta, mascarpone, honey, lemon juice, crushed red pepper and some salt until light and fluffly, about 2 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a piping bag (or make a piping bag using a resealable plastic bag).

Fill each salami cup with the some of the whipped ricotta mixture, then top with a couple slices of fig and some crushed hazelnuts. Garnish with the lemon zest and basil.
