"No more dipping artichokes in mayo! These artichokes are grilled with a lemon garlic basting and dipping sauce. This is the best way to eat artichokes... healthy too!"

  1. Fill a large bowl with cold water. Squeeze the juice from one lemon wedge into the water. Trim the tops from the artichokes, then cut in half lengthwise, and place halves into the bowl of lemon water to prevent them from turning brown.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Meanwhile, preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat.
  3. Add artichokes to boiling water, and cook for about 15 minutes. Drain. Squeeze the remaining lemon wedges into a medium bowl. Stir in the olive oil and garlic, and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Brush the artichokes with a coating of the garlic dip, and place them on the preheated grill. Grill the artichokes for 5 to 10 minutes, basting with dip and turning frequently, until the tips are a little charred. Serve immediately with the remaining dip.

Very good! I do think it's odd that the instructions don't mention to remove the choke, some cooks might not know that they should do that. Anyway, next time I think I would boil the artichokes ...

I also had grilled artichoke for the first time at the Cheesecake Factory restaurant, and loved it, so I was very pleased to find this recipe. I've made these a couple times now, and will contin...

This recipe reminds me exactly of the taste of the grilled artichokes at Houston's Restaurant. The only variation I put on it was to steam in a basket instead of boiling the artichoke.

Great recipe and super easy. I used small artichokes and made them for an appetizer - really a crowd pleaser and so pretty on the plate. I boiled them a little longer and also added a small amou...

Very good. Even my kids enjoyed it. Recipe didn't mention removing the chokes before grilling - which I did. They needed a bit more salt but were tasty even without using the additional dippi...

Living in the produce capital of America we have access to many fresh fruits and vegetables picked straight from the fields with artichokes among them. Easy preparation, though readers should t...
