  • 1 ¼ pounds salmon fillet, cut into 4 equal portions

  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper, divided

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • ¼ cup halved and thinly sliced shallot

  • ½ cup heavy cream

  • ¼ cup low-sodium chicken broth

  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

  • 3 cups coarsely chopped baby spinach

  • ½ cup sliced marinated artichoke hearts


  1. Arrange rack in upper third of oven. Preheat broiler to high. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.

  2. Place salmon skin-side down on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Broil, rotating once from front to back, until opaque in the center, 8 to 10 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Whisk cream, broth, cornstarch, garlic powder and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper together in a measuring cup. Add to the skillet and cook, stirring, until starting to thicken, about 2 minutes. Add spinach and artichoke hearts; cook, stirring, until the spinach has wilted, 1 to 2 minutes more. Remove skin from the salmon, if desired, and serve topped with the sauce.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
