Grilled Artichokes


1Preheat grill to high.

2Fill large bowl with water and add juice of one lemon.

3Cut the top 1/3 off of the artichoke.

4With scissors, trim the top portions of the remaining leaves to remove thorns.

5Cut stem leaving about 2" attached to artichoke.

6Turn the artichoke top-side down and cut through the stem to halve the artichoke.

7Cut again to quarter and remove fuzzy part of heart and center leaves with thorns [not much.]

8Immediately place in bowl of lemon water.

9Continue with balance of artichokes.

10Tear off a sheet of aluminum foil. Line up artichokes on foil, drizzle with oil, season with salt, and place lemon slices over.

11Tear off a second sheet of foil and place on top of artichokes. Crimp edges to seal and create a large pocket.

12Place on hot grill for 15 minutes. Tests doneness by inserting knife into thick portion of artichoke heart. You should feel a bit of resistance.

13Arrange on platter. Garnish with parsley. Can be served hot or at room temperature.

1NOTE: You can get similar results using your oven. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and follow directions.
