Since we've got such great Spring artichokes coming into markets, I'm inspired to use my favorite artichoke recipe, which my mom adapted from a restaurant we used to love. Simply steam the (cleaned) artichokes 30- 40 minutes, depending on the size, then, holding them with tongs, cut them in half lengthwise and coat the cut sides with a mixture of olive oil, minced garlic, and salt and pepper. Grill them on both sides until they start to get golden-brown ridges (I use a grill pan), and serve them with melted butter, garlic aioli, or, better yet, my favorite Caesar dressing. Enjoy.
