Grilled Artichokes

Houston’s Copycat Recipe

Grilled Artichokes:
2 large artichokes
1 lemon, quartered
3/4 cup olive oil
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 cups mayonnaise
3 tablespoons green sweet relish
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons capers
1 tablespoon anchovy paste (optional)
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
salt & freshly ground black pepper

Trim the tops and ends of leaves from the artichokes, cut in half lengthwise and remove the fuzzy choke. Squeeze a bit of lemon on immediately to prevent browning. If preparing artichokes ahead of time, place them in a bowl of lemon water until ready to boil. If unsure how to properly prepare an artichoke, look online for an easy demonstration. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Meanwhile, preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat.
