Q: Can you please get the recipe for Atlanta Fish Market’s Caesar salad and dressing? Thank you. — Victor Milner, Riverdale
A: Atlanta Fish Market’s chef Robert Holley shared this recipe, which has been on the Atlanta Fish Market’s menu since the restaurant opened in 1981. The Caesar salad itself is chopped Romaine lettuce and grated Parmesan served with this dressing. Holley says the croutons are optional and you may garnish the salad with additional anchovies if you like.
Note that the recipe contains one raw egg. Those with concerns about consuming raw eggs can use a pasteurized egg if they prefer.
