Caramalized red onion, fig and goats cheese tartin

Tarte tatin is a great French pastry dish, cooked with the pastry on the top to prevent it going soggy, reversing for presentation. Although usually best known as a dessert, such as apple tarte tatin, I decided to go for a savoury option with goats cheese, caramelized red onion, figs, balsamic and fresh basil. It really was a delight with the sweetness from the figs working well with the salty goats cheese. I served it with avocado, cherry tomato and mixed leaf salad which was perfect for a light dinner but would also have worked equally well as a great starter.
