To make the red onion jam, cook the onions in the oil with a pinch of salt for 10 minutes, covered, until beginning to soften. Tip in the sugar and cook for 10 minutes more, covered, until really soft. Pour in the vinegar and port, and gently simmer for 10 minutes until the onions are jammy. Leave to cool – it will make more than you need, but will keep for a month in the fridge in a sterilised jar.
An hour before serving, remove the coppa and burrata from the fridge to come to room temperature. Heat the oven to 200C/ fan 180C/gas 6. Roughly tear or chop the burrata.
Quarter the figs lengthways and drizzle with honey. Scatter with the thyme, some black pepper and a pinch of salt, then put on a baking tray and warm through for a few minutes in the oven.
Spread the ciabatta with some onion jam, then top with the burrata, hazelnuts, basil, a little more pepper and a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil. Spoon over the warm figs and any juices. Arrange on a tray with the coppa and pickled onions on the side, and drizzle with balsamic vinegar just before serving.
