Start by steaming the artichoke(s) until they turn a bright green. After steamed, sprinkle a pinch of salt on each artichoke to enhance the flavor.
In a saucepan, melt together butter, the zest of a lemon and lemon juice.
On a platter, put out the lemon butter and whole artichoke. To eat, pull out the artichoke leaves and dip in lemon butter. Simple. Easy. Delicious!
