   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    6      medium        artichokes -- about 3 across
    1 1/2  pounds        raw small shrimp
    6      tablespoons   lemon juice
    2 3/4  teaspoons     salt
      1/2  teaspoon      tarragon
      1/4  teaspoon      black pepper
    1      cup           mayonnaise
 
 To prepare artichokes, remove the stems, cut 1/2 off of top and snip off
 sharp tips of leaves and cook.  Don't over cook.  Remove chokes of artichoke
 by carefully spreading leaves and pulling out innermost ones and scrape away
 the fuzzy choke with a spoon.  To cook shrimp, bring 1 quart water to a
 boil, add 1 tablespoon lemon juice and 2 teaspoons salt.  Add shrimp and
 bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer 3 to 5 minutes till shrimp turns
 pink.  Reserve 1/2 cup water shrimp was cooked in, then drain, peel and
 clean the shrimp.  Reserve 18 shrimp for garnish.  Place remaining shrimp in
 blender with reserved liquid, the remaining 5 tablespoons lemon juice,
 seasonings and 1 cup mayonnaise.  Blend until shrimp are broken up, chill in
 refrigerator, where it will become considerably thicker until ready to fill
 artichokes.
