Artichokes with Smoked-Herb Mayo

**found in June 2011 Food and Wine Magazine

4 servings

4 large artichokes, stems trimmed
1 cup mayo (make sure it is gluten-free)
3 tbsp. chopped dill
2 tbsp. chopped capers
1 tsp. finely grated lemon zest
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp. smoked sea salt
1/4 tsp. smoked sweet paprika
Hot sauce
Freshly ground pepper

1.  Set a steamer basket in a large pot over 1/2 inch of boiling water.  Arrange the artichokes, stem side down, in the basket.  Cover and steam over moderate heat until a knife easily pierces the stems, about 30 minutes.  Transfer the artichokes to a platter.

2.  In a bowl, whisk the mayo, dill, capers, lemon zest and juice, salt and paprika.  Add a few dashes of hot sauce and season the may with pepper.  Serve the artichokes warm or lightly chilled with the mayo.

Enjoy! xoxo Julie
