Parsley, roughly chopped, for garnish
1 lemon, cut into wedges, for garnish
Prepare an indoor or outdoor grill.
For the marinade, combine all ingredients.
Add shrimp to a bowl. Pour half the marinade over top.
Lightly squeeze artichoke hearts to remove excess water. Place in a bowl and add the rest of the marinade.
Cover shrimp and artichoke hearts; refrigerate 30 minutes.
Alternately thread shrimp and artichokes on skewers, leaving a small space between.
