INGREDIENTS

  • 4 artichoke, medium Artichokes (Globe or French)
  • 4 fruit (2-1/8" dia) Lemon
  • 2 tbsp Coriander Seed
  • 2 tbsp Salt
  • 1/2 cup Unsalted Butter Stick

DIRECTIONS

  1. Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot. Trim the stems of the artichokes to about 2 inches.
  2. Halve 3 lemons and squeeze juice into water. Add lemon halves, coriander seeds and salt. Place artichokes in the cooking liquid, and cover with a heavy plate to keep them from floating. Boil 15 minutes, until a paring knife, inserted where the stem meets the bottom, comes out easily. Remove and drain excess water.
  3. In a small bowl, melt butter in a microwave or saucepan. Mix in juice of remaining lemon, salt and pepper.
  4. Serve each person one whole artichoke, accompanied by a ramekin of butter sauce and a large bowl for discarded leaves. Season with freshly ground salt and pepper to taste.
