    Rip off a 50cm sheet of foil, place on a work surface and drizzle with olive oil.  Place 2 sausages on the foil, sprinkle with a quarter of the grated lemon zest and a quarter each of the sliced onion, garlic and paprika. Fold the foil over gently, sealing the edges to create a loose parcel.  Repeat to make 4 parcels in all.  Place in the oven and cook for 20 minutes.

    Preheat a hot grill. Drain the artichokes and using a small knife cut them in quarters removing any leathery leaves and the hairs from the chokes.  Place the artichoke quarters on a lightly oiled tray, squeeze lemon juice over them and lightly grill for 5 minutes.
