  • 4 artichokes
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

Lemon Garlic Aioli

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Make the artichoke dipping sauce. Make the lemon garlic aioli by combining all ingredients in a bowl and mixing well to combine. Cover and place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
  • Prep the artichokes. Trim the top inch off of your artichokes with a sharp knife. Cut each artichoke in half, then use a large metal spoon to scoop out the center choke (the fuzzy hair attached to the heart).
  • Steam the artichokes. Preheat a large pan of water with a steam basket attached to it and bring the water to a boil. Place the artichokes in the steam basket over the boiling water. Cover the pan with a lid, and steam the artichokes for 8-10 minutes.
  • Preheat the grill. As your artichokes are steaming, preheat your grill to 450 degrees Fahrenheit (high heat).
  • Season the artichokes, and prep for the grill. After the artichokes are done steaming, remove them to a cutting board or baking sheet. Drizzle the cut sides with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Grill the artichokes. Place the artichokes cut side down directly on the grill and grill for 4-5 minutes. Flip them over and grill them on the back side for an additional 4-5 minutes for a total cook time of 8-10 minutes.
  • Serve hot. Remove the artichokes from the grill. Remove the lemon garlic ailoi from the refrigerator and serve immediately with the sauce and garnish with a lemon cut into wedges.
