Elaboración paso a paso
 

  • Preparation
  • Using a sharp stainless-steel knife, trim off the artichoke stems and slice 1 inch off the top.
  • Rub the cuts with the lemon half.
  • Place the artichokes, stem side down, in a large nonreactive pot and cover with water.
  • Add the salt and 4 lemon slices. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and boil gently uncovered until tender, 35 to 45 minutes.
  • To test doneness, pull a leaf out; if it comes out easily without resistance, the artichoke is done.
  • Drain the artichokes upside down in a colander or on a rack.
  • When cool enough to handle, discard all the green leaves, scraping off and saving all the edible parts in a small bowl.
  • Scoop out the fuzzy choke with a small spoon. Trim the bottom to a nice round shape.
  • Combine the tuna, onion, celery, and reserved artichoke pieces in a medium bowl.
  • Add the mayonnaise and black pepper; toss gently with a fork.
  • Adjust the seasoning.
  • Stuff the artichoke bottoms with the tuna and celery salad.
  • Arrange the lettuce on a serving platter.
  • Place the stuffed artichokes on top of the lettuce, and garnish with the tomato wedges and parsley.
