10 cloves garlic

2 lemons, halved

1 cup butter

Instructions

Artichokes:

  • Use a serrated knife to cut artichokes into quarters.
  • Cut sharp tips of leaves off and discard.
  • Scoop out the prickly center of artichoke and discard. Rub cut side of artichoke with lemon half to ensure no yellowing.

  • In stock pot, add peppercorns and the garlic cloves.
  • Squeeze juice from lemon into the pot as well and add leftover lemon skin to water.
  • Bring pot to a boil and then simmer for 22-25 minutes. Leaves should be easy to pull from the head and artichoke bottoms are tender.
  • Remove from pot and drain.
  • Drizzle artichokes with olive oil, kosher salt and pepper.
  • On a grill with high heat, place artichokes and cook until grill marks appear. About 3 minutes. Flip and do the same on other side.
  • Remove and serve with garlic lemon butter.

  • Remove from heat and let solids cool slightly.
  • Skim fat solids from clear butter below and discard solids.
  • Add lemon zest, garlic cloves, salt and thyme.
  • Cook on medium.
