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.

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’ve been in this weird phase where I have an aversion to salmon (possibly because I have 3 bags of it in my freezer that my ex left there and I am overwhelmed bahaha) but I have a feeling this can fix that..

    This looks amazing! Salmon is one of my favorite things to eat but I rarely make it because my hubby isn’t a fan but this would be perfect for dinner guests!

    Um, this is going to sound incredibly sappy, but I never thought I’d be able to fully open my heart & create something magicalal with another human being. Even though it can be slightly terrifying at times, I’m doing it anyway. It’s worth the risk!

    Photoshop me into your life.

    First of all, YUM. Second of all… the “moving around the saturation bar and hoping for the best” about iPhoto literally made me laugh out loud and now people in Coffee Bean are staring at me. I STILL need to download Photoshop… I am even more of a design newb than you. I am a PicMonkey girl for now, which works pretty darn well. PS… the blue salmon epidemic has happened to me in photos too. NOT appealing!

    Not only do I love artichokes and salmon (never have paired them though) so thank you for the recipe. But also thank you for the inspirational post! I’m starting maths classes soon and I’m so scatted of it because I think I won’t make it. I have to do the best I can and hope for the best. For maths it’s pretty good to know how to work with Excel. This is another challenge that I have to accomplish. I have no clue how it works but I hope worth the help of my bf and online tutorials I’ll get behind it!

    I have a love/hate relationship with Photoshop. I took a class in it for work last summer (you’re talking to a certified introductory Photoshop editor here! hahaha) and am loving how it is helping to improve my blogging photography editing skills, but on the other hand, it can be so time consuming and it drives me a little nuts sometimes!

    I’m taking a photoshop course in school this year and I had to finally buy it. Best decision I ever made 😀
    I really didn’t think I’d be good at half the things I do for my blog but once I stepped out of my comfort zone and took the plunge, everything started falling into place. So weird how that happens!

    I avoided Photoshop in college because I assumed I would be bad at it. …..talk about LACK OF confidence, I know. I still wouldn’t consider myself an expert (and currently haven’t been using it….long story….hoping to get it back soon), BUT I’m a firm believer that it can enhance photos when the natural lighting isn’t cooperating. Yay for NOT having blue salmon!

    LOVE salmon and this looks incredible. Your food photos look really amazing. It’s definitely tough to make some things look good no matter how delicious they are, but you clearly know what you’re doing!

    Add photoshop to the list of GWNTD. (Work that out!).

    PS. Legit after this arvo, there was a Harry Potter announcement. First Shashushka, then Harry Potter. We must be voodoo psychics.
