How to Make It

  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.

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.
