Crispy Fried Artichokes


  • 1 can Artichoke Hearts (12 hearts)
  • ½ cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 tablespoon Parmesan Powder (or finely grated Parmesan)
  • Salt, a pinch
  • Black Pepper, a generous pinch
  • 1 Egg (medium or large)
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon Parmesan Powder (or finely grated Parmesan)
  • 1 tablespoon Dried Basil
  • Oil for frying


  1. Drain the artichoke hearts and place them onto a few sheets of paper kitchen towel for a few minutes.
  2. Meanwhile: Prepare 3 bowls (or plastic containers). Put flour, parmesan, salt, pepper in 1; egg in second one (beat it with a fork); and breadcrumbs, parmesan, basil into the third bowl. Mix all well.
  3. Now, squeeze gently each artichoke heart, to get rid of the liquid that is trapped inside them.
  4. Coat each of them in flour mixture, egg and breadcrumbs and place onto a plate (or paper kitchen towel).
  5. Heat the oil in a small pot and deep fry the artichoke hearts until nice crispy and golden brown (about 3-4 minutes per batch).
  6. Best served warm with a dip of your choice.
