This lemon artichoke baked salmon couldn’t be easier to make! Make a simple marinade and then bake the salmon in the marinade for a flavorful, healthy dinner.

I have been on a major salmon kick lately! I’ve been trying to make it once a week in our household and I was recently reminded of this super simple recipe!

It looks like a gourmet meal but couldn’t be simpler to make. Serve with a side of rice and you’ve got dinner in no time at all!

Here’s What You Need

  • salmon – if you can find and afford it, wild salmon is the best option. Having said that, all salmon is beneficial to include in your diet to eat what you can!
  • olive oil – the base of the marinade. You could also use avocado oil.
  • lemon juice – I recommend fresh squeezed lemon juice as opposed to lemon juice from a bottle.
  • white wine vinegar – the perfect acidic pairing to this dish!
  • green onions – we’ll cooking the salmon with the white parts of the onion. Feel free to serve with the green parts!
  • garlic – a savory flavor base.
  • artichoke hearts – I used canned artichoke hearts that have been stored in water.
  • salt and pepper – to bring all of the flavors together.

How to Make Baked Salmon

STEP 1: In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon and vinegar. Add in the onions, garlic and artichokes. Stir to combine.

STEP 2: Place two pieces of salmon in a shallow bowl or pan and top with the artichoke mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Place in the refrigerator to marinate for 1 hour.

STEP 3: After marinating, bake the salmon (along with the marinade) at 375ºF for about 15 minutes or until the salmon is cooked to your liking.

    I seriously need to learn photo shop. Maybe since I won’t have a life/friends in SF it’s something I can pick up haha… at least during those hours all my East Coast friends are sleeping 🙂

    I love the combination of artichokes and lemon. Always have; always will. I did recently learn though artichokes are good for curing hangovers. I think I need to test this theory.

    I’m not really a LEMON fan, however, I am the BIGGEST and I MEAN BIGGEST SALMON FAN and ARTICHOKE FAN…. That I would plow through this in no time… Add a few olives and…. Oh man, you don’t want to know what sort of total destruction may erupt!

    At least 2 of the 3 boys I live with would love that salmon – might have to try it soon!!!
    I’m sort of scared to even attempt photoshop – mostly when Chris mentions using it for something I call it photo chop because I feel like that is what I need to do (chop stuff out of my pictures!!).

    LOVE this post and love this recipe! I remember always taking my photos with an iphone and posting non edited pictures that looked blurry! It’s so crazy to look back on them lol and to be honest I do not have the full hang of lightroom and food photography yet, I’m still learning and probably always will be! It’s always fun to see other bloggers grow and know that we all started somewhere!
    And on another note, this salmon. You know the way to my heart! Pinning!!

    Salmon is a weeknight staple for dinner in my household and I am always looking for new ways to cook it. You can definitely consider I will be recreating your baked lemon and artichoke version, looks and sounds really delicious.

    First of all, YUM.
    Secondly, I’m pretty proud of myself for learning how to…blog. I mean, I’m still within the fence of wordpress templates and such, but I’m happy that I’ve gotten a hang of the blogging process as a whole. That being said, I hope I keep learning how to improve little moves and grooves.
    I want to learn how to do a dang handstand.
