How to Make It

Step 1

Heat oil in a medium pot over medium heat until it reaches 350° on a deep-fry thermometer; when oil is hot, reduce heat to low. Mix mayonnaise and sesame oil; set aside.

Step 2

Use a paring knife to shave stem ends of the artichoke to a point like a pencil. Remove all outer green and tough leaves until you reach the yellowish core. Cut each artichoke in half and put in a bowl of ice water. Squeeze lemon quarters into water and drop in peels.

Step 3

Drain artichoke pieces and blot dry with a towel. Working in 2 batches, cook artichokes until browned and crispy, about 8 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a paper towel to drain. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and salt to taste. Serve with mayo.
