From the Test Kitchen

When it comes to well-balanced flavors, lemon, dill and salmon were made to be together. The herbal brightness of dill enhances lemon’s citrusy notes—and together, they contrast wonderfully with the richness of salmon. Here, we’re showcasing this delicious trio in our irresistible salmon burgers, layered with juicy tomato, peppery arugula and zesty aioli (a classic complement to seafood). Corn on the cob, simply dressed with softened butter, brings even more end-of-season freshness to the plate.

Cook & flake the salmon:
1 Cook & flake the salmon:

Pat the salmon fillets dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned fillets, skin sides up. Cook 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until lightly browned and cooked through. Transfer to a large bowl and set aside to cool for 5 minutes. Remove and discard the skin from the fillets; using a fork, flake the fillets into small pieces. Wipe out the pan.

2 Prepare the ingredients & make the aioli:

While the salmon cooks, wash and dry the fresh produce. Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Remove the butter from the refrigerator. Pick the dill off the stems; discard the stems and roughly chop. Quarter and deseed the lemon. Remove and discard the corn husks and silks; halve the cobs. Halve the buns. Core the tomato; cut into 4 rounds. Peel and mince the garlic; smash with the side of your knife until it resembles a paste (or use a zester). In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise and as much of the garlic paste as you’d like; season with salt and pepper to taste.
