4 Artichokes
Salt and pepper
1/2 Cup(s) Virgin olive oil
2 Lemons cut in wedges
Pull off outer layers of deep green leaves from each artichoke and
discard. Cut off stem and set aside. Rub each cut with a lemon wedge.
Place artichoke on its side and cut off top third. Discard these
points. Using a pair of scissors, cut offthe sharp points. Soak 10
minutes in cold water with 1 ounce. lemon juice. Carefully open the
leaves by prying with your fingers as if opening a flower and the
pressing down on the counter the opening face. Drain each artichoke on
paper towels, shaking to remove all liquid. Season aggressively with
salt and pepper between each leaf and all over. Heat the virgin olive
oil in a tall side sauce pan, 8-inch to 10-inch wide at base until
just smoking. Cook artichokes in this hot oil 12 to 15 minutes, until
golden all over. After 10 minutes of cooking, spritz the pan by
shaking your wet hand over the artichokes to mist them. Be careful:
this will cause the oil to sizzle and spatter.. When the artichokes
are cooked, remove each one, and holding the artichoke by skewering
its base with a fork, press the flower side down to force it further
open. Drain on paper towels, season with salt and pepper again and
serve with lemon wedges. Posted to MC-Recipe Digest V1 #237 Date:
