Trim the stems from the ends of the figs and halve them lengthwise. Press the tip of a teaspoon into the center of each fig half to make a slight depression to hold the goat cheese and arrange them on a serving tray.
Combine the goat cheese and 1 teaspoon of the honey until blended. Mound a small amount of the mixture (about 1/2 teaspoon) in the center of each fig.
Use a fork to drizzle a small amount of honey over the figs. The goal is to add just a touch of sweetness, so be conservative and don't get it on the sides of the figs or your guests will have sticky fingers!
Top each fig with a tiny pinch of sea salt and serve.
