2. Add the figs to the remaining sauce in the saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the figs are tender but still hold their shape and the liquid is thick and reduced by half, 10 to 12 minutes. Turn off the heat and use a slotted spoon to transfer the figs to a medium bowl. Set the sauce aside.
3. Prepare a medium- hot charcoal or gas grill.
4. Set the papayas cut side down on the grill, cover, and cook until the papayas have grill marks, 5 to 6 minutes.
5. Use tongs to transfer each papaya half to a plate. Divide the figs among the papayas, then drizzle with the remaining sauce. Sprinkle with the goat cheese and mint and serve.
