    Lemon butter sauce
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) melted unsalted butter
  • ½ teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • sea salt, to taste

Instructions

  1. With a large knife, cut stems off artichokes so they sit flat on the plate.
  2. While working with one artichoke, place others in a large bowl of water and the lemon juice.
