"These flavorful artichokes with their butter, garlic and shallot taste are sure to please any artichoke fan. I especially like the smokey flavor the grill adds."

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for low heat.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Place the artichokes into the boiling water, and season with salt and pepper. Throw in half of the garlic, and half of the shallot. Boil for about 30 minutes, or until a fork is easily inserted into the stem of the artichokes. Drain and set aside.
  3. Melt the butter in a small pan over medium heat, and stir in the remaining garlic and shallot. Cook just until fragrant, then remove from the heat.
  4. Place the artichoke halves onto the preheated grill. Brush some of the melted butter onto them. Cook for 5 to 10 minutes, brushing with butter occasionally, until lightly toasted. Serve with remaining butter as a dipping sauce.

Pretty good. I felt it could use a bit more flavoring, however. Also ~ be careful when putting them on the grill after removing them from boiling water. Mine were VERY tender (yummy), but accide...

This is my first time making artichokes and theses were sooooo amazing and easy. The grilling really does make a difference. These were better than I've had in a restaurant, and my boyfriend sa...

The garlic butter dip was a big hit. Since it started to rain, we moved the grilling indoors to the broiler. I just broiled the artichokes for about 5 minutes and they were still great.

This was wonderful. I added a bit more garlic and shallots. Also, right before putting them on the grill, I put balasmic vinegar over top. I don't think I will artichokes any other way from now ...

Hate to toot my own horn, but I can't get enough of these. Try sprinkling a little grated parmesan on the grill after basting with the butter. I love shallots now, on everything.

This was great and easy. I made it for my visiting family who come in from artichoke country of Monterey California area. They enjoyed the Texas mesquite smoke flavor from our grill. (We use o...

YUMMERS! My kids have been addicted to artichokes since they were in pre-school, but unfortunately, they can be so darn pricey. So, being that we had no kids for dinner tonight, we decided to tr...

These are fantastic. I used foil on the grill, which helped them not fall into the coals, and also used ridiculous amounts of garlic and shallot. We'll definitely make these again.
