Servings: 8 servings
- 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.
