4 serves


  • 1 cup walnut pieces

  • 4 cups fresh corn kernels (from 4 ears), raw or cooked

  • ½ cup crumbled Feta (2 ounces)

  • 2 jalapeños, seeded and thinly sliced

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for the grill

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

  • kosher salt and black pepper

  • 1 ¼ pounds skinless salmon fillet, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced

  • 4 rolls

  • avocado slices and cilantro sprigs for serving (optional)


  1. Heat oven to 400° F. Spread the walnuts on a rimmed baking sheet and toast until fragrant, 6 to 8 minutes. Let cool, then roughly chop.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the corn, Feta, jalapeños, oil, lime juice, walnuts, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.

  3. In a food processor, pulse the salmon 3 or 4 times, until coarsely chopped but still somewhat chunky.

  4. Add the scallions, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and pulse just to combine. Form the mixture into ¾-inch-thick patties.

  5. Heat grill to medium-high. Oil the grate. Grill the patties, turning once, until opaque throughout, 2 to 4 minutes per side.

  6. Serve on the rolls, topped with the avocado and cilantro (if desired).
