Fried Baby Artichokes

  • Servings: 4
Fried Baby Artichokes

Source: Martha Stewart Living, April 2007

Ingredients

  • 12 baby artichokes
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt or sea salt
  • 4 garlic cloves, lightly crushed
  • 1/2 lemon, for serving

Directions

  1. Prepare the artichokes: Working with 1 artichoke at a time, snap off tough outer leaves until pale-green leaves are exposed. Cut off top third. Using a paring knife, peel dark-green layer from base and stem; trim stem.

  2. Pour oil and 1/2 cup water into a medium deep, heavy pot or Dutch oven. Add artichokes and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook over medium-high heat, turning artichokes occasionally, until water has evaporated and oil begins to spatter, about 8 minutes.

  3. Add garlic. Reduce heat to medium; cover pot with a spatter screen or an inverted sieve. Continue cooking artichokes, turning occasionally, until tender and golden brown all over, about 10 minutes. Turn artichokes cut sides down, and press with tongs, wiggling them to separate leaves. Cook until crisp and dark golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes more. Using tongs, transfer artichokes and garlic to paper towels; set artichokes cut sides down to drain. Sprinkle with salt. Serve with lemon for squeezing.

    Where do I find baby artichokes? I don't recall seeing them next to the regular-sized artichokes in my grocery store.
