365 Project - Day 67

Grilled Artichokes

This is a recipe that I have adapted from having this dish a few places, but specifically Hillstone (Houston's), where I have been known to eat an entire order myself.

Ingredients:
Artichokes
Garlic (finely Chopped)
Salt
Pepper
Olive Oil

• Prepare wood (I use whatever I can find in the back yard, otherwise they sell wood just for this) by soaking in water for several hours •

Finley chop Garlic a mix togther in a bowl with salt, pepper and Olive Oil, let stand. Steam the artichokes until they are 3/4 of the way cooked through (if you pull at a leaf it should almost want to release. Remove from the steamers without burning your self, and cut in half. Remove the choke. Slather with the oil and garlic mix, making sure to get it well covered.

On a preheated grill with the burners set to medium high. If you are adding the wood, do so now. Place the artichokes round side down (giving the garlic time to get into the , close the lid and let cook until there are grill makes. Give each a 1/4 turn to make nice hash marks, and cook until the marks are present. Turn over and cook the same way, until it is nicely charred.

Some people like to dip it in butter, but I find that it takes something a little stronger to hold up to the flavors, so I often make a Garlic Lime Aioli.

Note: If you do not like the taste of smokey things, omit the steps with the wood, and just grill it without.
