  1. Rub the cut side of the artichokes with a little of the lemon juice.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the artichokes and saute for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium, then add the water, cover and cook until tender, about 20 minutes. Toss with the remaining lemon juice, salt, pepper, parsley and mint. Place on a serving platter, and have plain toothpicks available for skewering.
