1Prepare your ingredients: Heat a large pot of salted water to boiling. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the garlic cloves. Mince 1 clove, smashing until it resembles a paste. Finely chop the other clove. Peel off the husks and remove the silks from the corn. Take the butter out of the refrigerator to soften. Finely chop the basil leaves. Slice the tomato. Peel and mince the shallot. Finely chop the salmon.
2Make the aioli and basil butter: Make the aioli in a small bowl by combining the garlic paste, the mayonnaise, a squeeze of lemon juice, and splash of olive oil. Stir until blended and season with salt and pepper to taste. Make the basil butter by adding half the basil and half the shallot to the softened butter. Stir until blended and season with salt and pepper to taste.
