Grilled Artichokes & Lemon Aioli
During the Summer my husband and I love to grill and this is one of our go to dinner appetizers that is always a hit! He takes care of the artichokes and I make the dip, it’s a joint effort and they are a definite crowd pleaser!! Anything with this much lemon and garlic is always #1 in my book!
Cut artichokes in half and remove the choke, then steam for about 10 minutes. Remove and brush artichokes with mixture of lemon juice, lemon pepper, cayenne pepper, olive oil & garlic. Then place on the grill for 8 minutes turning frequently.
I don’t use measurements, this is basically all to taste… Take about a cup of mayonnaise and add a drizzle of olive oil, the juice from one lemon, half of a lemon’s zest and 2-3 garlic cloves minced. Stir well and add garlic salt, lemon pepper and cayenne pepper to taste. Stir again and refrigerate for a half hour or so before serving. When ready to serve add the second half of lemon zest to the top for garnish.
