Cook the Book: Artichokes Basted with Anchovy Butter

Photograph by Jennifer Maiser

Over the past few years grilled vegetables have become a barbecue staple. Bell peppers, onions, artichokes, tomatoes and eggplant, charred and tossed with some olive oil, salt and pepper are becoming rivals to classic summer sides like potato salad cole slaw. They are quick, easy and pretty healthy but is it just me or are they a little, well, boring?

This recipe for Artichokes Basted with Anchovy Butter from Adam Perry Lang's Serious Barbecue takes already delicious grilled summer artichokes a step further with the addition of anchovy garlic butter. Not everyone loves anchovies but they are excellent for adding a super savory depth of flavor and the end result is not at all fishy.
