Salmon with Artichokes and Feta

Serves 2-4.

Prep time: 5-10 minutes approx.

Cooking time: 20-30 minutes approx.

Wild Alaskan Salmon is so good for you! It’s rich in Omega 3 oils and it tastes divine! I prepare it so many different ways, but I’m always experimenting. A few years ago, when my parents were visiting, looking for a low cal and nutritious alternative, I decided to experiment with artichokes and feta. Needless to say, it became a family favorite! The recipe is simple, easy to make. It’s great after you’ve had a long day at work and don’t want to fuss in the kitchen (however, it tastes like you’ve been slaving over a stove for hours!). Below is also a link to a video of me preparing the recipe for a show no longer in production. However, stay tuned for my new series, “Simply Delicious Living with Maryann (.com)!” Enjoy!
