To make


To make Herb Aioli, combine all ingredients except for the mayonnaise in a blender and blend for approximately 10 seconds; scrape the mixture from the sides and repeat the process once more. Pour into a small mixing bowl, fold in the mayonnaise and refrigerate.

Thaw salmon according to package directions. Season liberally with the blackening seasoning. In a non-stick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over MEDIUM-HIGH heat and sear salmon for 3 minutes each side.**

Toast the sourdough buns and spread liberally with Herb Aioli. Top with shredded lettuce, tomatoes, onion, blackened salmon, and your favorite burger toppings. Serve and enjoy!

Serving Suggestions

**To GRILL salmon: Preheat grill to MEDIUM heat and lightly oil grill surface. Place fish skin-side down on grill and cook for 10—12 minutes, flipping portion halfway through cooking.

Serve with a side of potato chips and a squeeze of lemon.

Herb Aioli can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
