DIRECTIONS

  • Fill a large bowl halfway with water; squeeze the lemon halves into the water and add the lemons.
  • Trim the stem of 1 artichoke; starting at the base, bend the tough outer leaves back and pull off where they break naturally.
  • Using a vegetable peeler, peel the dark green skin from the base.
  • Halve the artichoke lengthwise and scoop out any choke.
  • Add to the lemon water.
  • Repeat with the remaining artichokes.
  • Heat the oil in a heavy large saucepan over medium heat until a thermometer registers 350 degrees F.
  • Drain the artichokes and pat dry.
  • Mix spices into flour in a ziplock bag; add artichoke and shake to coat.
  • Working in 2 batches, add the artichokes to the hot oil and cook until they are tender and golden brown, about 8 minutes.
  • Using a slotted spoon or tongs, transfer the fried artichokes to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
  • Sprinkle with salt while artichokes are still warm and serve.
