This is a perfect dish for football season if you serve the mini artichokes with individual dipping cups for the Lemon tarragon aioli.

I found everything I needed at Fresh Market. Thanks to Tommy Bahamas for inspiring this dish.

I love to serve wild caught grilled salmon with a blueberry sauce as a perfect Labor Day good bye to summer meal…well, at least a goodbye to our friends up North.

For artichokes:


  • Herbs de Provence
  • Chopped parsley
  • Lemon aioli

Prepare the artichokes, using a sharp knife cut ¼ off the top. On the bottom trim 1/3 and remove small leave. Place in deep pot with boiling water and steam about 20-25 minutes depending on size of artichokes and when leaves are tender and easy to remove.

Herb de Provence Vinaigrette

  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • ¼ cup raspberry vinegar
  • 1 ½ TBSP. minced garlic
  • 3-4 TBSP. fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 8 ounces grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup herb de Provence with Lavender (I mix the lavender into the herbs)
  • 2 TBSP. Granulated sugar
  • ½ ounce honey
  • 2 tsp. Hawaiian Sea Salt
  • 2 ½ cups olive oil
  • 1/8 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp. fresh ground pepper

Combine all ingredients except olive oil. Use an immersion blender for one minute. Slowly incorporate oil. Set 1 -2 cups aside.

In a large casserole dish lay artichokes heart side up and cover with Vinaigrette. Marinate at least 12 hours

Place halves face down on the grill or grill pan for about 3 minutes rotate and grill on other side

Remove and drizzle seasoning

Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve with Lemon Tarragon Aioli

Lemon Tarragon Aioli

  • 3 cups mayo
  • 2 TBSP. garlic puree
  • 3 TBSP. zest of lemon
  • 2 TBSP. fresh tarragon

Whisk all ingredients together. Will last 2 days in refrigerator.

Should you be allowed to own exotic, potentially dangerous animals?

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) removed seven reptiles from an unlicensed man last week. FWC investigators charged Nick Mitchell with unlawful possession of seven venomous reptiles and several other violations related to the care, keeping and labeling of his animals. The animals, including a gila monster, black monocled cobra, rhino viper, dusky pygmy rattlesnake, black neck spitting cobra and two banded cobras, were seized and placed at a local licensed facility.
