Grilled Artichokes

  • 2 artichokes
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Olive oil
Trim the top of the artichoke and the pointy edges with kitchen shears. Fill a large pot with water, the lemon juice, half of the lemon , and also the garlic clove. Bring it to a boil and add the artichokes. Use a large bowl to hold the artichokes under the water, and boil for 20 to 25 minutes.

Once removed from the water and cool enough to handle, cut each artichoke in half. Then drizzle olive oil on both sides and season with salt and pepper. Grill on medium to medium-high heat for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Remove from the grill and serve warm with dipping sauce.

Dipping Sauce:
  • 1/2 Cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 Tablespoon horseradish sauce
  • 1/2 lemon squeezed
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 shallot finely chopped
Mix all of the ingredient together and refrigerate until ready to use.
