Salmon and Artichoke Salad

Truth moment: I used to hate salmon because I thought it was boring. Everywhere I went, it was just put on top of a recipe. Rarely did I go somewhere that had it put in a recipe that was creative or different. Salmon cakes were about as innovative as it got, but I most of the time they were fried so I would never order them. That’s why this week I decided to create some recipes that used salmon in new ways! In ways they were an ingredient in the recipe, not just a blanket that lays on top. First up is this appetizing Salmon and Artichoke Salad.

Why Salmon and Artichoke Salad?

This weekend, I was at Central Market for the first time in a few months. It can be pretty pricy, so I don’t go in often, but I wanted some fresh meat so I stopped by.  As I came to the spectacular seafood counter, I saw that some of the prices were just out of my league. I walked up and down trying to figure out which one wouldn’t make me cry, and for some reason the salmon (priced at $14.99/lb) caught my eye. I don’t know why, but it just looked fresher and tastier than anything else, so I splurged and bought a pound of it.

 

When I got home, I threw some olive oil, salt, and pepper on it then broiled it for 10 minutes. I was just about to cook some broccoli to go with it, when I realized that I didn’t want another boring plate of salmon. I happened to have bought some canned artichokes at Central Market (just because they were there) so I figured I could do something with that.  I threw a bunch of random ingredients in a bowl and was surprised to find it was actually tasty!

  1. I am so not creative when it comes to salmon. I would never have thought to pair it with artichokes and throw it into a salad! Will definitely try this next time.
