Fried Artichokes

As prepared by Girl Who Ate Everything,

Fried artichokes are one of my favorite appetizers at the restaurant that my family and I eat at often. Last time we were there I paid detailed attention to the flavors and details of the dish so that I could try to replicate it on my own at home.


These Fried Artichokes with Lemon Garlic Sauce tasted just like the ones at the fancy restaurant but made at a fraction of the cost.


Fried Artichoke


Start off with canned and quartered artichokes – no meticulous chopping here. The artichokes are dipped in an egg mixture, coated in a Parmesan breadcrumb crust, and then fried for a few minutes to get them nice and crispy. A quick light lemon garlic sauce is the perfect compliment to dip them in.


I have eaten artichokes boiled and steamed, in dips and salads; heck, I even have fake artichokes in my flower arrangements around my kitchen. But until recently I hadn’t discovered that my favorite way to eat an artichoke is fried.


I was thrilled to discover that frying the artichokes actually brings out their sweetness. These Fried Artichokes definitely aren’t your typical appetizer but are unique and tasty. They are a quick and easy appetizer to whip up for your friends or family.
