Blooming Artichoke

This method is such a treat, and literally turns an ordinary Artichoke into a snack that will give even the best potato chips & dip a run for their money!

  • 1 fresh artichoke
  • Canola oil for frying
  • Lemon and its zest for the side
  • Melted butter..for dipping!
  • Kosher salt for sprinkling!


Servings 8

  1. In a medium sized, deep pot heat up the oil
  2. Make sure the oil is deep enough to cover 3/4 of the artichoke, the oil will expand when you add the artichoke to it needs room!
  3. Trim the sharp thorny ends of all the leaves, and spread out the artichoke.
  4. When the oil is ready, gently lower the artichoke, leaves down/stem up, into the oil
  5. Babysit it while it fries up, it takes about 12-15 minutes to get golden, but make sure it doesn’t burn!
  6. Drain, sprinkle some salt & serve with some lemon zest, melted butter and lemon wedges! Or, you can get creative with your dip and mix up some garlic aioli, or a nice dill/sour cream combo..Mmm!

The heart!

Make sure to remove the choke (the fuzzy center) of the artichoke before serving the heart!
Each crispy and golden leaf will come out easily, and will have so much flavor!

Cut the heart into fourths, dip in butter and savor the most succulent bite EVER!
