4 ounces soft goat cheese
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
Fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 Fuyu persimmons, quartered and thinly sliced, preferably with a mandolin
Fresh or dried thyme, or other herbs, for garnish
1. Pre-heat the boiler.
2. Place the goat cheese in a ramekin. Drizzle the olive oil on top. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Broil 6 inches from the flame for 8-10 minutes.
3. While the cheese is heating, place the persimmon slices on a serving platter.
3. When the cheese is bubbling and/or golden brown, allow it to cool for a few minutes. Stir with a spoon to mix it all together.
4. Drop about a teaspoonful of cheese on each persimmon slice. Garnish with thyme and black pepper and serve immediately.
Note: these are also delicious at room temperature.
