Grilled Fresh Artichokes

Prep time 20 mins
Cook time 45 mins
Cool time 15 mins
Grill time 10 mins
Yield Makes 4 to 8 servings
In order to grill artichokes, you have to steam them first.

Ingredients

  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • 5 fresh parsley sprigs
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 fresh artichokes (about 3/4 lb. each)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • garnish: fresh flat-leaf parsley sprigs

How to Make It

  1. Combine lemon, next 3 ingredients, and 2 1/2 cups water in large Dutch oven. Place a steamer basket in Dutch oven.

    Wash artichokes by plunging up and down in cold water. Cut off stem ends, and trim about 1 inch from top of each artichoke, using a serrated knife. Remove any loose bottom leaves. Trim one-fourth off top from each outer leaf, using kitchen shears.

    Arrange artichokes in steamer basket. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 35 to 40 minutes or until stem end is easily pierced with a long wooden pick. Remove artichokes from Dutch oven. Let cool 15 minutes.

    Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high). Carefully cut artichokes in half lengthwise; remove and discard choke. Liberally brush cut sides of artichokes with olive oil, and sprinkle with desired amount of salt and pepper.

    Grill artichokes, covered with grill lid, over 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat 5 minutes on each side. Serve with Buttery Dipping Sauces or Mayo Mixtures. Garnish, if desired.
