Stuffed Artichokes with Smoked Salmon

Published On April 17, 2010 | By Deborah Smith, Executive Editor | Appetizers, leftovers, Recipes

After my Blogger party last week, I had a ton of smoked salmon still in the fridge, so I went in search of a recipe that incorporates some nice spring veggies and my lovely smoked salmon.  This is the first of two I will be posting.  Tonight I will be concocting a pasta dish with asparagus, fresh peas and smoked salmon.  Then that’s it for smoked salmon for a while. (I promise, family.)

This recipe comes from a website called What’s Cooking America.  One of the coolest features of the site is the page for Newspaper Food Sections and Columns in newspapers all over the country. If you’re food obsessed, I’ve just added a whole new dimension to your obsession.  Sorry about that.

The instructions call for large artichokes.   I found it perfect for 4 nice sized medium Artichokes. I also think that the stuffing alone would make a great sandwich or topping for a salad.  It’s basically egg salad with smoked salmon and capers.

Stuffed Artichokes with Smoked Salmon

3 to 4 hard-cooked eggs, chopped

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1 minced fresh chives

1 tablespoon capers

1/2 teaspoon coarse salt or Fleur de sel

Juice of 1/2 lemon

6 to 8 ounces smoked salmon, cut or shredded into small pieces

2 large artichokes, cooked, choke removed, and chilled.  (I used 4 medium sized)

Lemon wedges

If you’ve never cooked artichokes before, which I had not, you can find instructions on their website here. I boiled them for approximately 25 minutes and they came out perfect.

In a medium bowl, stir together chopped hard-cooked eggs, mayonnaise, chives, capers, salt, and lemon juice. Stir in smoked salmon. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. To serve, gently spread the leaves of the cooked artichokes. Place smoked salmon salad in the center of each artichoke. Serve with lemon wedges.

    Deborah: I must pass on a tid-bit about yesterday’s Stuffed Artichoke and Smoke Salmon. I look forward to preparing it but, in the meantime….
    You mentioned that you went into so I followed. There was a fascinating piece transcribed by Doc Lawrence (Sipping Across America). The article relayed the story of a meeting that took place long ago in the back room a wine store in Atlanta. The piece is absolutely fascinating and hit home as the owner of the store was none other than my wife’s first cousin, James B. Sanders. It tells of one of the most unlikely meetings in American history and I recommend it to any Bite that may have any interest in American History
    Thanks for bringing this site to our attention. John
