About this recipe: Serve these breaded, deep-fried artichoke wedges as a starter while they are still hot and crispy.


Serves: 8 

  • 12 whole fresh artichokes, stems removed
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 200g plain flour
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 200g breadcrumbs
  • vegetable oil for deep frying
  • salt, to taste

Prep:25min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Extra time:10min soaking  ›  Ready in:55min 

  1. Clean the artichokes and remove the tough outermost leaves and slice off the very top. Slice in half and scoop out the hair.
  2. Cut the cleaned artichoke hearts into wedges; place in a bowl of water with lemon juice and leave to soak for 10 to 20 minutes. This will eliminate the bitter taste; drain and pat dry with kitchen paper.
  3. Heat oil in a deep frying pan until moderately-hot. Roll the artichoke wedges in flour, then dip in beaten egg and toss in breadcrumbs.
  4. Fry artichoke wedges in moderately-hot oil, a few at a time, making sure they have the time to cook inside without burning.
  5. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper. Sprinkle with salt and serve.
