I absolutely love artichokes. In the past I’ve simply steamed the artichokes whole and then removed the undesired parts as I ate it. Since we are coming up on summer I wanted to play around with grilling artichokes.I didn’t want to grill them whole because I’m sure it would take forever. I found this great video from Gourmet Magazine on how to trim artichokes.
1. Simply trim the artichokes as shown on the video (linked above) then cut them in half.
2. Steam the artichokes for 10-15 minutes. Remove from pan and rinse in cold water to stop the cooking process then pat them dry.
3. Drizzle the artichokes with olive oil, salt, & pepper.
4. Grill the artichokes on heated grill for 3-5 minutes each side to char slightly.
5. Serve them with aioli.
