About this recipe: Fresh artichokes are cooked in boiling water, then basted with a simple lemon, garlic and olive oil sauce and finished off on the barbecue. In my opinion, this is the best way to eat artichokes!


Serves: 4 

  • 2 large artichokes
  • 1 lemon, quartered
  • olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  1. Fill a large bowl with cold water. Squeeze the juice from one lemon wedge into the water. Trim the tops from the artichokes; cut in half lengthwise and use a spoon to scrape out the hairy choke. Place halves into the bowl of lemon water to prevent them from turning brown.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to the boil. Meanwhile, preheat an outdoor barbecue for medium-high heat.
  3. Add artichokes to boiling water; 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 sauce and place them on the preheated barbecue grate. Cook the artichokes for 5 to 10 minutes, basting with the garlic mixture and turning frequently, until the tips are a little charred. Serve immediately with the remaining garlic sauce.
