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.

How To Make grilled artichokes

  • 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.
