grilled artichokes

If you like artichokes, here’s a simple recipe to try on your egg…
Cut off the top portion of the 'chokes, peel off the outer layer of the stems then cut the 'chokes in half and scrape out the fuzzy stuff.
Steam them until the centers are fork tender and let them cool. Make a mixture of lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper and oregano. Place the marinade in a baking dish and then add the 'chokes cut side down and leave them over night; I do not marinate them in the fridge but you may prefer to. Then grill them on your BGE at around 400-450F until nicely marked. If you can get some smoked paprika, mix that into your mayo dip.


  • Animal Eater,
    I used a very similar recipe last week using baby artichokes. I think the only other difference was my recipe called for herbs de provence instead of oregano. The chokes were a big hit and looked very gourmet all arranged on the platter. Good stuff.[p]Oh yeah - like you I did not marinate in the fridge.
