Marinated Artichoke Appetizer from Morocco. The Arabian Delights by Weiss-Armush. English: artichoke, Spanish : alcachofa, Arabic: al-khurshuf. Works beautifully as part of a mezzeh; or in the manner of Spanish tapas. Middle Eastern red pepper powder is usually aleppo or Turkish but you can sub 4 parts sweet paprika to 1 part cayenne. Also, I've read several sources online that ancho chili powder will work, too. If you really hate cilantro, substitute fresh flat leaf/Italian parsley.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 453.59-566.99 g fresh artichoke hearts (can used frozen or jarred artichoke hearts but they mustn't be marinated)
- 1 clove garlic crushed with salt
- 59.14 ml olive oil
- 29.58 ml lemon juice
- 4.92 ml sumac (DO NOT omit!)
- 1.23 ml dried tarragon
- 1.23 ml ground middle eastern red pepper (read recipe intro^^)
- 59.14 ml fresh cilantro, minced (FRESH!)
- 1Note: I used fresh baby artichoke hearts from Trader Joes. Personally I would not recommend canned but frozen will work.They were stripped of their outer leaves then steamed until tender. The artichokes were then drained and set aside to cool before adding the dressing.
- 2Whisk the dressing together in a non-reactive bowl and set aside.
- 3Cut the prepared artichoke hearts in half or quarters, depending on size. Arrange the artichoke hearts on a serving platter.
- 4Drizzle the dressing over the artichoke hearts. Marinate at least 1 hour. Serve at *room temperature*. When ready to serve, garnish with the fresh cilantro.
