Creamy Spinach-Artichoke Salmon

Prepare a quick and effortless dinner for four, where the vegetables and sauce combine in one skillet while the salmon broils. Not only is this meal convenient, but it also offers the numerous health benefits of salmon. Rich in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, salmon is also loaded with essential vitamins and nutrients, including B vitamins and potassium.

  • Active Time: 20 mins
  • Total Time: 20 mins
  • Servings: 4


  • 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 cut marinated artichoke hearts


  1. Arrange the oven rack in the upper third position and preheat the broiler to high. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
  2. Place the salmon fillets skin-side down on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Broil the salmon, rotating once from front to back, until it is opaque in the center, typically taking around 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shallot and cook, stirring, for about a minute. Whisk together the heavy cream, chicken broth, cornstarch, garlic powder, and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper in a measuring cup. Add the mixture to the skillet and continue cooking, stirring, until it starts to thicken, which should take around 2 minutes. Add the baby spinach and artichoke hearts to the skillet and cook, stirring, until the spinach has wilted, typically lasting for about 1 to 2 minutes. If desired, remove the skin from the salmon before serving. Serve the salmon topped with the sauce.
