    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!

    Ingredients
    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.
