With a subtly flavored ingredient like artichokes, sometimes the simplest approach is best when preparing this side dish of Pan-Roasted Artichokes with Lemon and Garlic. A little roasted lemon, garlic, and fragrant rosemary are all you need to make tender baby artichokes shine.
6 cups water
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
18 baby artichokes (about 1 3/4 pounds)
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 large garlic cloves, halved
1/2 lemon, thinly sliced
1 (6-inch) rosemary sprig
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 425°.
Combine water and 3 tablespoons juice in a bowl. Cut off top 1/2 inch of artichokes. Cut stems to within 1 inch of bases; peel stems. Remove tough outer leaves, leaving tender cores. Halve each lengthwise; add to water.
Drain artichokes; pat dry. Combine artichokes, oil, salt, pepper, and garlic in a bowl; toss to coat. Heat a large ovenproof skillet over high heat. Add half of artichoke mixture to pan; cook 1 minute on each side or until lightly browned. Remove from pan. Repeat procedure with remaining artichoke mixture. Return artichokes to pan; add lemon slices and rosemary. Bake at 425° for 20 minutes, stirring once. Remove rosemary leaves, and sprinkle over artichoke mixture; discard stem and any blackened lemon. Sprinkle with 2 teaspoons lemon juice.
