PREPARATION
STEAMING THE ARTICHOKE
1.
Set a steamer basket in a large pot; add enough water so it reaches just below the basket.
2.
Squeeze/juice 1 lemon into the water and add 1 tablespoon salt; bring to a boil.
3.
While water is coming to a boil, snap off the tough outer leaves of each artichoke. Using a serrated knife, cut off top 1/3 of artichoke. Snip remaining sharp or spiky tips using kitchen shears.
4.
Trim stem so artichoke stands upright. Rub cut surfaces with 1 lemon (cut in half) to prevent discoloration. Repeat with remaining artichokes and lemon.
5.
Place artichokes in steamer basket, stem-side up. Cover pot, and steam until heart is tender when pierced with a tip of a paring knife, and inner leaves pull out easily, 25 to 35 minutes; add more water to pot, if necessary.
PREPARING THE MARINADE
6.
While the artichoke hearts are steaming,zest 1 whole lemon (should equal roughly 1 tbsp zest) and juice 2 lemons (should equal roughly 1/4 cup juice). Mince the oregano and thyme.
7.
In a medium size bowl whisk together the olive oil with the lemon juice, garlic and sea salt.
8.
Add the oregano, thyme and lemon zest and stir well to combine. Season to your taste with the sea salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes.
MARINATING THE ARTICHOKE HEARTS
9.
When the artichokes are done steaming, slice them in quarters or halves and add them to a small salad bowl.
10.
Pour the marinade over the to and gently toss to coat all over. Taste and adjust seasonings again then cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
11.
Bring to room temperature about 20 minutes before serving. Sprinkle capers over the top of the artichoke hearts (if desired) and serve.
NOTES, TIPS, TRICKS, HINTS, ETC:
"Hands on" time is ~10/15 minutes. The majority of the time is spent steaming/marinating.
