  1. Toss shallots in a small bowl filled with lemon juice. Allow to soak for 10 minutes, set aside.

  5. Transfer remaining figs to a blender and pulverize until slightly chunky.

  7. Prepare a grill for medium-low heat.
  8. Brush cut sides of baguette with oil.
  9. Grill, cut sides down, until bread is toasted and golden brown, about 3 minutes.
  10. Allow toast to cool for a minute.
  11. Spread generous amounts of burrata cheese over bread. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt. Spread fig salsa over cheese.
  12. Cut each half on a diagonal into 6 pieces. Serve topped with prosciutto or on the side.
