Description

A yummy way to prepare artichokes rather than traditional steaming.

Preparation

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.  Preheat grill to medium-high heat.  Trim the stem from each artichoke to 1-inch 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 form the center of each wedge.  

Place finished artichokes in a large bowl of cold water and squeeze 2 lemons into the water and stir.  Continue with remaining artichokes.
Once finished, drain the artichokes and place into boiling water and cook until crisp-tender, about 12 minutes.

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

Meanwhile, in a medium sized bowl, add remaining lemon juice (1/3 cup) parsley, garlic, and salt and pepper, to taste.  Gradually drizzle in olive oil.  Toss or drizzle the grilled artichokes with the garlic/parsley mixture and serve.
