In Spain, baby artichokes are a common item in the produce market. They are not just miniature versions of the mature artichokes, but are very tender as well... and although not the prettiest tapa, fried baby artichokes are tasty! This tapa recipe is easy - cut the baby artichokes into quarters, dip lightly in flour and egg, then fry. They are equally good as a tapa or a side dish. Although we like to munch on them with Spanish garlic mayonnaise, called alioli sauce, they are delicious on their own, too.
