This simple salmon pasta salad makes a delicious wholesome meal, packed with nutrients, healthy fats, and fiber. Pasta and fresh vegetables are tossed in a tangy and slightly sweet lemon mustard dressing, then topped with perfectly roasted salmon fillets.
• Check the doneness of the salmon using a kitchen thermometer. When it’s inserted into the middle of the thickest fillet, it should register between 135°F and 145°F. The cook time will depend on the thickness of the salmon.
• To make individual salmon pasta salad bowls, divide the salad between 4 plates or shallow bowls, and place 1 salmon fillet on top of each bowl.
• Serve with extra avocado slices sprinkled with black sesame seeds, lemon wedges or slices to squeeze over the salmon, and fresh herbs if desired.
