Grilled Artichokes

My wife and I started eating and making boiled/steamed artichokes when we were in college. We thought we were very sophisticated. We know better now but still enjoy artichokes in almost any form.

This is a simple recipe that adds just a little pazzazz to the run of the mill steamed choke.

Prep:

5 Min

Cook:

30 Min

Method:

Grill

Ingredients

2 large
artichokes
2 large
limes
1 Tbsp
galic salt
1 Tbsp
mexican oregano
2 Tbsp
olive oil

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Bring large pot of salted water to a rolling boil.
2
Remove top quarter of artichoke (bread knife works well for this) and trim pointed tips (kitchen sheers work well here) from the remaining leaves. Finally trim the stem to approximately 1/4 inch from the base of the artichoke.
3
Place trimmed chokes in the boiling water and weigh down with a small plate to keep them submerged. Boil the artichokes until almost ready to eat. Knife should slide in the bottom (stem) with only a little resistence.
4
Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
5
Remove from water and drain upside down until cool enough to handle.
6
Slice each artichoke in half lengthwise. With a spoon, remove the think pinkish leaves and the hairy choke.
7
In a large bowl, add the oil, garlic salt, juice from limes and oregano and liberally rub mixture onto and into each artichoke half.
8
Grill each artichoke half turning occasionally until slightly charred, about 8-10 minutes. Serve with clarified butter, your favorite vinaigrette or mayonnaise with a little horseradish and a couple of dashes of hot pepper sauce.
