What Started it all:
Salmon, Artichoke, vinegar (apple cider, balsamic), oven

This dish combines the delicate flavors of salmon with the unique taste of artichokes, all enhanced by a tangy balsamic glaze. It's a perfect blend of freshness and richness, making it a delightful meal for any occasion.


  • 4 salmon fillets (about 6 oz each)
  • 2 cups canned or jarred artichoke hearts, drained and quartered
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves (or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. In a small bowl, combine the apple cider vinegar, olive oil, minced garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  3. Place the salmon fillets in a shallow dish or a resealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade over the salmon, ensuring each fillet is well-coated. Let it marinate for at least 15 minutes.
  4. While the salmon is marinating, lightly grease a baking dish with a bit of olive oil. Arrange the quartered artichoke hearts in the dish.
  5. Place the marinated salmon fillets on top of the artichoke hearts in the baking dish. Pour any remaining marinade over the top.
  6. Place the dish in the preheated oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
  7. While the salmon is baking, pour the balsamic vinegar into a small saucepan. Bring it to a simmer over medium heat and let it reduce by half, until it becomes a thick glaze (about 5-7 minutes).
  8. Once the salmon is done, remove it from the oven. Drizzle the balsamic glaze over the salmon and artichokes. Garnish with fresh parsley if desired.
