Grilled artichokes with parsley and garlic

  • 6 fresh artichokes
  • 2 lemons halved, plus 80ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp freshly chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 120ml extra-virgin olive oil
1) Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

2) Trim the stem from each artichoke to 2.5-cm long, then bend back and snap off dark outer leaves. Cut top inch of artichokes with serrated knife. Using a vegetable peeler, peel dark green areas from stem and base of artichoke. Quarter each artichoke. Using a small, sharp knife, cut out the choke and remove the purple, prickly tipped leaves from the center of each wedge.

3) Place finished artichokes in a large bowl of cold water and squeeze 2 lemons into the water and stir. Continue with remaining artichokes.

4) Once finished, drain the artichokes and place into boiling water and cook until crisp-tender, about 12 minutes.

5) Drain the cooked artichokes and place onto preheated grill. Cook until tender and lightly charred in spots, turning occasionally, about 10 minutes.

6) Meanwhile, in a medium sized bowl, add remaining lemon juice, parsley, garlic and salt and pepper, to taste. Gradually drizzle in olive oil.

7) Toss or drizzle the grill artichokes with the garlic/parsley mixture and serve.
