Total time: 
Serves: 4 servings
  • 5 oz dry whole wheat pasta
  • 1 lb salmon filets (4-4 oz filets)
  • 1 tsp salmon seasoning
  • 10 oz romaine, chopped
  • ½ cup + 2 Tbsp Ken's Lite Caesar Dressing, divided (or brand of preference)
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, diced
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan
  • 2 oz Parmigiano-Reggiano, shaved
  1. Bring 2 quarts of water to a rolling boil over high heat. Once boiling, stir in pasta, reduce heat to medium-high, and cook until al dente, about 9-10 minutes. Run cooked pasta under cold water; transfer to a medium bowl and toss with 2 tablespoons of the Caesar dressing.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Season salmon with salmon seasoning and bake for 12-14 minutes, depending on thickness of the salmon.
  3. Meanwhile, add the romaine to a large bowl. Drizzle remaining ½ cup dressing over the salad and toss well. Add the diced tomatoes, Parmesan, and Parmigiano-Reggiano; toss. Add the pasta; toss again.
  4. Distribute salad among 4 plates and top with a 4 ounce piece of salmon. Serve immediately.
I used Grill Mates Salmon Seasoning, however there are generally several options in the spice aisle of major grocers.
