Fire-Roasted Artichokes with Herb Aioli Sauce
2 extra-large artichokes
For the marinade:
2 teaspoons chopped garlic
1 shallot, chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoons chopped basil or cilantro
Salt and pepper to taste
Herb Aioli (recipe follows)
Lemon wedges for garnish
Optional garnish: your choice of caviar
Directions:In medium pan with steamer, bring water to a boil. Trim
artichoke bottoms and leaf-tops flat. Steam artichokes for 25 to 35
minutes until tender at the core. Drain, cool and cut in half. Cut
out fibrous, fuzzy centers.
Mix together all ingredients for marinade. Place steamed artichokes
in marinade for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from mixture and place on
char broiler or barbecue with the leaves of the artichokes facing UP
on grill. Cook for 4 to 6 minutes depending upon fire temperature,
just long enough to heat for serving and add grill-smoke flavor.
Remove from grill and serve with Herb Aioli (or caviar, if desired),
and lemon-wedge garnish.
Makes 4 appetizer servings.
