6 servings

  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 large cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 3 lemons
  • 16 baby artichokes
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 red onion, cut into thin wedges
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 2 1/4 -pound salmon fillet (in one piece)
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons fennel seeds, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 3 tablespoons torn fresh parsley
  • Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic; cook, stirring, until golden. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the garlic to paper towels. Reserve the oil.

  • Fill a pot with cold water. Add the juice of 2 lemons, then add the 2 lemon halves to the pot. Cut off the top inch of an artichoke with a serrated knife. Cut off the stem and snap off the tough outer leaves. Using a paring knife, cut away the tough green parts around the base, then halve the artichoke lengthwise and add to the pot. Repeat with the remaining artichokes. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1 tablespoon of the reserved garlic oil to the pot and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Simmer 4 minutes, then drain. Discard the lemon halves.

  • Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and preheat to 400 degrees F. Thinly slice the remaining lemon. Pat the artichokes dry; toss in a large baking dish with the onion, lemon slices, 2 tablespoons of the reserved garlic oil, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste. Spread in a single layer and roast on the upper oven rack, stirring once or twice, until tender and lightly charred, about 35 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, brush another large baking dish with 1 tablespoon of the reserved garlic oil. Add the salmon, skin-side down, and rub with any remaining garlic oil. Sprinkle with the fennel seeds, red pepper flakes, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Roast the salmon on the lower oven rack until just cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes. Cut into 6 pieces and divide among plates. Serve with the roasted artichoke mixture. Top with the parsley and fried garlic.
