Inspired by Chef Roy Choi on the Netflix show “Chef Show” I decided to try my hand at my own Artichoke Carpaccio dish. The dish that’s pictured is what I came up with.
First I trimmed the artichokes down to their hearts removing the leaves and choke. I cooked my artichokes hearts to the perfect tenderness in salted water with freshly squeezed lime juice. After the artichoke hearts achieved the desired tenderness I sliced them very thin. Season the sliced artichoke with more fresh squeezed lime juice, salt, and black pepper. Your next step is to sprinkle a bit of olive oil and top off with flaked parmesan, some little cutie or mandarin orange slices and finish with candied salt pork or bacon. I garnished with some nice baked sage chips.
You can adjust the recipe in many ways as it is ultra-versatile and marries well with other ingredients. An alternate interpretation I would add to this dish is a nice pesto aioli for some pop of color. The dish tasted wonderful without is so it’s not a must make adjustments. I do think it would complement it nicely however.
