Artichokes

  1. Heat your grill over high heat and clean the grill grates.
  2. Bring a large pot filled 2/3 full with water to a boil over high heat. Squeeze the juice from 1 lemon into the boiling water.
  3. Immediately after cutting the artichokes, add them to the boiling water to prevent them from turning brown.
  4. Boil for 20 minutes.
  5. Remove the artichokes from the water, and use a melon baller or small spoon to scoop out the artichokes fuzzy center.
  6. Baste the cut side of the artichokes with the lemon garlic basting oil. Place the artichokes cut side DOWN on the grill, then baste the backs of the artichokes.
  7. Grill for another 15-20 minutes, or until the artichoke leaves start to get charred marks on the tips.
  8. Serve warm with the lemon garlic aioli.

Notes

-You can prep these ahead by doing steps 1-5, then refrigerate the boiled artichoke halves. When it’s time to eat, proceed with steps 6-8. You can refrigerate them for up to 2 days ahead of time.
