Ingredients
  • 1 Can Quartered Artichoke Hearts (in water, not oil!) Drained well
  • 1/2 Cup All Purpose Flour
  • 2 Large Eggs, Beaten
  • 1 Cup Japanese Panko Bread Crumbs
Garlic Aioli
  • 1/2 Cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Chopped Garlic
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 1 Teaspoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Herb (e.g. Basil, Chives, Parsley) Optional
Instructions
  1. Drain artichokes well in a colander and lay them out on a kitchen towel to dry more while you assemble your dredging station and pre-heat your air fryer

  2. In 3 different bowls, set up a flour bowl, an egg wash bowl and a panko bowl with a large plate at the beginning and at the end

  3. One by one, lightly dust each artichoke heart in the flour, tapping off excess and put them on the first plate until all artichokes are coated.  

  4. Take an artichoke and dip them in the egg wash, roll them on the panko and press to coat them well.  Place each one on the plate at the end.

  5. Spray the top side of the dredged artichokes with olive oil and then carefully transfer them to the pre-heated fryer basket.  Place them in oiled side down and then spray them all on the top

  6. Cook for 8 minutes at 360 degrees

  7. In a small mixing bowl, combine the remaining ingredients to make the garlic aioli dipping sauce.  This can be made a few hours earlier if you really want the garlic flavor to develop.
