1. Step

Start by seasoning your salmon fillets on both sides with salt and pepper. This is an important step as it enhances the natural flavors of the salmon.

2. Step

Heat a pan over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add the salmon skin side down. Gently pressing down ensures even and thorough cooking. Pan-sear for about 4-5 minutes on each side until the skin is crispy and the fish is just cooked.

3. Step

While your salmon is searing, you can prepare your salad. In a large bowl, combine the roughly torn romaine hearts and halved cherry tomatoes.

4. Step

Once your salmon is cooked, allow it to rest for a few minutes. This locks in the juices and makes for a more tender fish.

5. Step

Toss your salad with your chosen Caesar dressing. I find store-bought to be very convenient, but making from scratch gives you control over the flavors.

6. Step

Now, it’s time to assemble. Divide the salad into 4 separate servings. Place a piece of cooked salmon on top of each serving.

7. Step

Finish off by sprinkling fresh parmesan cheese over your salads. Add croutons for an extra crunch and don’t forget a squeeze of lemon right before serving. The acid brightens up the flavours and breaks through the richness of the salmon.
