I always loved when restaurants had grilled artichokes on the menu,
I could just about taste them even before they arrived at the table.
I now can enjoy them anytime….Here is how I Grill Artichokes accompanied by a fabulous sauce.
Now that I know how to grill them myself, I can have them anytime I’d like.
They are not so intimidating anymore!
I rinse the artichokes off and then cut off the stem,
cut off the top of the artichoke about 1 1/2 inches down,
then trip the ends (they tend to be sharp and can poke at you)
I cut those off with scissors.
Next I cut them in half.
Pull out the choke (the purple leaves that area poky and the fuzzy stuff too)
Place them in a steamer and squeeze lemon juice over them so they don’t brown, the quicker you can get the lemon on them the better.
Steam them for about 8 minutes, until tender.
I place them on the hot grill or a heated grill pan,
usually takes 5-10 minutes to get a nice charring on them.
