Instructions Checklist
  • Place flour in a shallow dish. Lightly beat egg in another shallow dish. Combine panko and 4 tablespoons Parmesan in a third shallow dish. Pat artichokes dry. Toss artichokes in the flour to coat. Dip in the egg, letting excess drip off. Then roll in the panko mixture.

  • Heat 3 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the artichoke hearts and cook, flipping once, until crispy and golden on both sides, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate.

  • Whisk mayonnaise, lemon juice, mustard, garlic, anchovy paste, if using, and the remaining 2 tablespoons each oil and Parmesan in a large bowl until combined. Toss romaine with the dressing until coated. Serve with the crispy artichoke hearts and garnish with pepper and more Parmesan, if desired.
