SALMON STUFFED WITH ARTICHOKE & SUN-DRIED TOMATOES, WITH A LEMON CAPER SAUCE!

If you’re a lover of salmon like me, then you have to try this! It’s easy to put together for a mid week meal, and elegant enough to serve for a special dinner party.

Serve this with a nice crisp salad and a cold glass of Pinot Grigio, and you’ve got a match made in heaven!!


The actual stuffing is made with frozen artichoke hearts, that have been defrosted and squeezed of any excess water (Trader Joes has the best!) sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil and sliced into strips, a couple of shallots, a hint of garlic, and some good flavored breadcrumbs, not the kind that’s real fine, something with texture.

Saute in olive oil and butter, the shallots and garlic, add your breadcrumbs till golden and crispy.
Add artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes, mix well.

Take one piece of salmon, seasoned with a little salt and pepper and a good drizzle of olive oil, place a mound of stuffing on top, add a second piece of salmon on top of that, repeat with salt, pepper, olive oil and a little paprika. Line a pan with parchment or tin foil and roast till moist and flaky.

Lemon Caper sauce****
Squeeze fresh lemon and a dash of water into half and half, or cream that has been cooked down till thick, add black pepper and capers.

Lay your salmon on a bed of fresh sauted spinach, and pour the sauce on top, the flavor combinations work great together, hope you give it a try!!

Buon Appetito!

  1. I make a salmon with a lemon/ caper sauce that I just love…then to stuff it with artichokes and sundried tomatoes would bring it over the top!!! Excellente!!!!

  2. You always manage to incoporate my favorite ingredients.Maybe I’m secretly part Italian :-). This dish sounds so good.

  3. Fish was meant to be paired with lemom and what the heck, capers are great with seafood too!

    I also love wilted spinach with salmon.

  4. This sounds absolutely wonderful and it’s making me hungry just looking at it!

    I found you way of Finding La Dolce Vita..and I’m glad I did.

    Marie, Looks wonderful. Cannot wait to try it. We love salmon, and this is a nice variation.

  7. All I have to say is Mmmmmm! I have missed all of your 2008 posts. For some reason, when I click on your site from my blog it takes me to your latest Dec post. I just figured you were taking a break! Wow all of your latest dishes look amazing. I can’t wait to read about them! Happy New Year!

  8. What a lovely combination Marie!! I’m not a big salmon lover not because of the taste, it’s just so over eaten here in Ireland. It was the only fish you could get for years in restaurants!! This recipe could bring me and salmon back together:)

  9. Fish is perfect right now after the heavy holiday foods and sweets. Who said that?! haha..not little ol’ me :)

  10. I think it sounds just fantastic!

  11. This looks amazing! So many good things rolled into one dish!

  12. Hi Val, I bet yours is great too!

    Hi Glam, Hmmm, maybe you are!!!

    Thanks for your comments Peter!!

    Hi Laurie! and welcome, I want to make a stop over by you, Thanks for comming!

    Alejandra, Welcome! Meyer lemons would be delicious, I can never find them here.

    Jenny, I’m glad we got it all figured out!

    Lorraine, Come on back!

    Anonymous,Hi! Who are you? Come on don’t be shy!!

    Maryann, I’m trying to be good and your making all those delicious sweets by you!

    Kalyn, Hi, nice to have you visit! Thanks for your comments!

    Thanks Kevin!

  13. Oh my word! I had this “marked” for future use even before the entire page loaded! Looks like I’ll have to go contrary to my occasional use of salmon. Artichokes and lemon caper sauce…I’m sold!

  14. this looks delicious… i too love Trader Joes frozen artichokes…

    as italian as I am… i could take or leave capers… i know they provide a salty flavor to dishes, but im not crazy about them. think if i left them out it would damage the integrity of the dish?

  15. Rowena, I know your going to like it!

    Meghan, I never like capers when I was younger, but now I do. I think it’s an acquired taste!! But no, it wouldn’t hurt the recipe at all, just do a lemon sauce, it will be just as good.

  16. Hi, glad to have stumbled onto your blog:) I love italian food! you do seem to have a nice spread here… baked savoury muffins with sun-dried tomatoes recently:)

    btw, I’m hosting a Game Night blog event this month; it’d be nice if you could participate with a simple entry (details on my blog)

    Thanks!

  17. Salmon is always sold frozen here and we pay US$5 to $6 for a piece that weighs 3 ozs :( I’ll try this with another fish though.

    As always, your food looks so appetizing.

  18. Hi Marie – that sounds delicious, I love all the flavors, perfect pairing with salmon, but I especially like the idea of a double-decker salmon dish. Kudos to you for that idea!

  19. Love Salmon. Have not made it with type of stuffing/ sauce.
    Usually make it with a brown sugar glaze. I will have to give your recipe a try. It sure does look good.

  20. Yum! This is a recipe I would see on a menu and know its the one to order. My mouth is watering thinking about it!

  21. WOW..What a wondeful Salmon Recipe, I love salmon and will defintely try your recipe.
    I’m a new comer. Found you on a search for Italian recipes.
    Thank you,
    Fazila
