7:44 pm Second courses

Artichokes have wonderful taste, but cooking of this dish is a quite laborious work. Still be sure your effort will be rewarded.

1 liter water
2 artichokes, peeled
6 ounces shrimps, shelled and cooked
4 tomatoes, diced
1 lemon peel and juice
1 big clove garlic, grated
3 leaves spring onion, sliced
1 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper at taste

1. Fill a big saucepan with water and add lemon juice. Bring to a boil and put artichokes inside. Cover and cook for 20 minutes, until the leaves are easily separated from the stalk.
2. Take artichokes from the pan, allow them cool and water flow down. Cut the top and remove inedible pith.
3. Heat olive oil in a deep pan, place garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes over a medium heat. Combine with onion and cook for 2 minutes more. Combine with shrimps, tomatoes, lemon peel, salt and pepper and fry for 2-3 minutes over a strong heat.
4. Stuff artichokes with shrimp mass, spot with olive oil and trim with lemon peel.
