Fried Artichoke Hearts
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Use freshly steamed artichoke hearts, quarter them when cool enough to handle. Or, use a bag of frozen artichoke hearts, such as Trader Joe's.
1 pkg. frozen artichoke hearts (Trader Joe's) or 4-6 steamed artichoke hearts, quartered
Get the artichoke hearts ready by cooking fresh ones and when cool enough to handle, cut into quarters. Or, defrost a bag of frozen ones. Set aside. In bowl, whisk the egg, beer and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Set aside. In a flat dish or deep plate, combine flour, Panko, baking powder, paprika, salt, and cheese. Set aside. In heavy bottomed saucepan heat enough oil to a depth of about 1 1/2 - 2 inches. Heat to 350-375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a few paper towels and set aside. Put the artichoke hearts into the bowl with the egg and beer mixture to coat each piece. Place in flour mixture to coat nicely. When oil is hot, gently lower 6-8 pieces into the oil and cook 2-3 minutes, or until browned. With a strainer spoon, remove and place on the paper towel lined sheet. Repeat with the rest, regulating the heat as needed.
