Artichokes with anchovies


This recipe come from my father which in fact it’s a little strange because my father doesn’t like cooking at all (cannot say the same about eating). You can use this recipe as a ligth dinner/supper, as a first course or even as an appetizer.

You can find the instructions in the video bellow:


  • ½ lemon
  • Artichokes
  • Anchovies
  • White vinegar

On a bowl with water squeeze half lemon, this will prevent the oxidation of artichokes. Cut the tail of the artichokes, remove the exterior leaves until you see leaves with a tonality between green and yellow and cut the end of the leaves. Cut the artichokes in 4 pieces and with the help of a small knife remove the small hairs in the heart of the artichoke, let rest the artichokes in the water with lemon.

Heat water on a pot and add two bunches of salt. When the water is boiling add the artichokes and cook them for 15 minutes. Drain the artichokes and add above them some drops of white vinegar. Finally mix with the anchovies, of if you want a nicer presentation just cross the anchovies with a toothpick and then cross the artichokes.

    Una muy buena receta de alcachofas es cortarlas en cuartos, como las tienes en el vídeo pero dejando el rabito, y freílas después en aceite de oliva. Una vez fritas, se quedan crujientes las hojas de fuera y blanditas las de dentro, se les echa un poco de sal. Cuando se fríe algo, hay que meterlo en aceite muy caliente y sacarlo sin que se enfríe el aceite porque de lo contrario se queda aceitoso….
