Citrus Braised Artichokes Recipe

Citrus Braised Artichokes Recipes

Ingredients :

6 large globe artichokes

1/4 cup lemon juice

1/2 cup orange juice

1/2 cup tangerine juice or additional orange juice

1 cup water

1 tsp red pepper flakes

6 garlic cloves

bay leaf

zest of 1 orange

zest of 1 lemon

3 tbsp chopped parsley

Method :

Cut the stems and tops of the leaves off the artichokes. Drop into boiling salted water and cook for 8-10 minutes. Remove the artichokes with a slotted spoon and rinse with cold water. When cool enough to handle, remove the leaves and scoop out the fuzzy choke, leaving the trimmed hearts.

Bring the citrus juices, water, red pepper flakes, garlic cloves, bay leaf, and zests to a simmer in a wide saucepan. Drop in the artichoke hearts and simmer until firm-tender, 15-20 minutes longer. Remove the artichoke hearts with a slotted spoon. Garnish with the chopped parsley. Serve with a lemon or orange wedge, if desired. These are good served warm or at room temperature.

Serves 6

This recipe is of Sicilian inspiration. The combination of citrus and a little hot pepper is an interesting contrast for the meaty artichokes.
