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.

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Remove and discard the husks and silks of the corn. Cut the kernels off the cob; discard the cob. Peel and mince the shallot. Pick the oregano leaves off the stems; discard the stems and finely chop the leaves. Peel and mince the garlic; using the side of your knife, smash until it resembles a paste (or use a zester). Quarter and deseed the lemon. Halve the buns. Finely chop the salmon and place in a large bowl; thoroughly wash your hands, knife and cutting board after handling the salmon.

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), melt half the butter on medium-high until hot. Add the corn and half the shallot; season with salt and pepper.
