Finishing off artichokes on the grill, is the BEST. It lends a nice crispy texture to the edges and a smoky flavor that a pot of boiling water just wont give ya. This recipe is great for the Summer. —Courtney Elizabeth
Prepare a large pot with water and broth. (inch or two) Add the juice of one lemon. Bring to a light boil and drop in cleaned/trimmed artichokes. Cover. Gently simmer for 15 minutes. Remove artichokes. Cool. Slice in halves.
Heat the grill to medium-high. Brush artichokes on both sides with olive oil. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Grill cut side down, first. About 10 minutes, then 5 on the other side..
Carefully scoop the chokes (the hairy part near the heart) out of the artichokes using a teaspoon.
