Grilled Artichokes

This was my first attempt at cooking artichokes whole like this myself...I LOVE artichokes and order them when and where I can, so when I glanced and saw these at the store it clicked that I should finally try them.

 They were really easy, and they turned out really yummy. The balsamic vinegar and the spicy aioli were perfect combo to the grill flavor. These will be made again for sure at this house!

Grilled Artichokes


1/3 cup olive oil
3 T balsamic vinegar
2 T salt
1 T Black pepper
1/2 T white ground pepper (optional)
Cayenne pepper to taste
1/2 T Oregano flakes
+/- 1 1/2 T Lawery’s
1 T minced garlic

 Spicy aoili:

 1/2 cup mayo
tapatio hot sauce {or whatever your fave is.}

Cut the artichoke in half first, {so it doesn’t fall apart later}, then place in boiling water for about 20-25 minutes.

Spoon out the feathery middle part, without hurting the heart, the best part. Spoon the marinade over the insides of the artichoke and let sit for at least 30 minutes. Heat grill or indoor grill pan and cook for 5-10 minutes, turning every few minutes. Remove once there is a nice char.
