Fried Artichoke Hearts

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at 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
1 egg
1/2 cup beer
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup all purpose unbleached flour
1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1-2 tablespoons grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
corn, peanut or soybean oil for frying

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.
Best served hot or warm, just as they are or with mayo or other desired dips.
