Let me introduce you to my favorite salad to make at home. I absolutely love salmon caeser salads ! It’s actually one of my favorite things to order when I dine out for lunch at restaurants but nothing compares to my homemade version. Making a salmon caeser at home is simple and delish due to the flavors that I season it with.

This is actually a bomb weeknight dinner as well. To cut time , you can also use one of those pre packaged salad kits.

As always , let me know what you think and how it turned out for you ! Enjoy ❤️

Serves 2


2 salmon filets (6-8 ounces each )

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1 + 1/2 teaspoon cajun seasoning (I used Old Bay)

1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning

1/2 small lemon

romain lettuce , chopped


parmesan cheese

caeser dressing ( I used Ken’s Creamy Caeser)


1. Season salmon filets with cajun seasoning and lemon pepper seasoning

2. Heat a large skillet (use medium high to get a nice sear)

3. Add oil and butter

4. Once butter has melted add seasoned salmon filets

5. Cook on each side for 3-5 minutes depending on thickness until fully cooked

6. Remove from heat and squeeze juice of the lemon over both filets – set aside

7. In a large bowl add lettuce , croutons, parmesan cheese , and Caeser dressing

8. Top with salmon filet

9. Serve and enjoy !
