From the Test Kitchen

In this delicious spin on one of America’s quintessential meals, we’re serving succulent salmon burgers, flavored with fresh oregano. Made by mincing raw salmon fillets, seasoning them, then forming them into patties and cooking them on the stove, our salmon burgers are a light yet incredibly delicious alternative to the typical burger. On the side, we’re serving a summer salad of arugula and sautéed shallot and corn. And to complete the meal, we’re spreading creamy aioli onto the burgers and topping them with a pinch of arugula.
