Cook Time:


6 Servings


About the Recipe


  • 6 fresh artichokes

  • 2 lemons halved, plus 80ml freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 45g freshly chopped flat-leaf parsley

  • 1 tsp finely chopped garlic

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 125ml extra-virgin olive oil


Step 1

Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Preheat griddle to medium-high heat.

Step 2

Trim the stem from each artichoke to 2.5-cm long, then bend back and snap off dark outer leaves. Cut top inch of artichokes with serrated knife. Using a vegetable peeler, peel dark green areas from stem and base of artichoke. Quarter each artichoke.

Step 3

Using a small, sharp knife, cut out the choke and remove the purple, prickly tipped leaves from the centre of each wedge.

Step 4

Place finished artichokes in a large bowl of cold water and squeeze 2 lemons into the water and stir. Continue with remaining artichokes.

Step 5

Once finished, drain the artichokes and place into boiling water and cook until crisp-tender, about 12 minutes.

Step 6

Drain the cooked artichokes and place onto preheated grill. Cook until tender and lightly charred in spots, turning occasionally, about 10 minutes.

Step 7

In a medium bowl, add remaining lemon juice, parsley, garlic and salt and pepper, to taste. Gradually drizzle in olive oil. Toss or drizzle the artichokes with the garlic/parsley mixture and serve.
