  • 1 large egg white, lightly beaten

  • Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup canola mayonnaise

  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

1. Bring milk to a simmer over medium heat in a medium, heavy saucepan. Add fish; cover and simmer for 5 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Drain well. Combine fish, 1/4 cup panko, and next 8 ingredients (through 1 garlic clove); stir in 1 tablespoon juice. Divide fish mixture into 8 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty. Dredge patties in remaining 1/4 cup panko, pressing to coat.

2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 4 patties to pan, and cook for 4 minutes on each side or until golden. Remove from pan, and drain on paper towels. Repeat procedure with remaining olive oil and patties. Drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon juice.

3. To prepare sauce, combine canola mayonnaise and remaining ingredients. Serve sauce with cakes.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 2 cakes and 1 Tbsp sauce)

Note: may take more egg/panko/breadcrumbs to get sticky enough to make into cakes
