Grilling artichokes brings out a subtle nuttiness to them and makes them super fun to eat. Microwaving saves on the prep time as well as the cleanup. Whiskey Oak Steak Seasoning makes them Smokin' Good.
- Prep: 10 mins
- Cook: 10 mins
1Cut top (1/2 inch) and bottom (part starting to brown) stem off artichoke. Peel stem with vegetable peeler if desired.
2Carefully split artichoke in half with sharp knife.
3Place split artichoke in glass bowl with water and cover tightly with plastic wrap.
4Microwave on high 3 minutes or until a fork easily pierces the stem.
5Remove from bowl and use spoon (grapefruit spoon works good) to remove choke (hairy part of artichoke heart)
6Drizzle/brush with olive oil and liberally season with Whiskey Oak Steak Seasoning.
7Grill over high heat, turning once, until lightly charred.
8Serve with clarified butter or (my favorite) mayo.
Don't waste the stem. If peeled it is just as tasty as the heart.
