Grilled Artichokes

Why have I never made these before?? They take a little more work than just steaming, but oh so worth it! All you do is trim them, cut them in half lengthwise, then blanch for about 15 minutes. Drain on paper towels until cool enough to handle, then scoop out the furry insides. In a bowl, mix about 3/4 cup olive oil, juice of one lemon, some fresh cracked pepper & salt. Brush each artichoke with the marinade. Grill on the BBQ (high heat) for about 10 minutes or until you get some nice grill marks. Serve right away or eat chilled. The great thing is that mayonnaise and/or melted butter is not necessary! Enjoy!
