• 1 9 1/4-ounce can tuna or albacore or other canned fish or 1 1/2 cups leftover cooked fish
• 1/4 cup wheat germ flakes
• 1/4 cup milk powder
• 1/2 teaspoon basil OR 1/4 teaspoon dill weed
• 1 tablespoon oil, if using leftover fish
• 1 tablespoon water
Drain oil from canned fish into heating frying pan, or if using leftover fish, put 1 tablespoon oil into frying pan. Mix all ingredients in bowl. Form into 4 patties and pat wheat germ flakes on each side. Fry slowly, about 10 to 15 minutes, turning once. Sprinkle on lemon juice, if available, or make some mustard from dry powder.
Variation: You may add leftover cooked grain to these patties and they will serve four. Simply double the herb, add 1/4 teaspoon salt, and add 1 tablespoon water (this will depend on the moistness of the grain). Follow as above and serve with soy sauce or mustard. You may also need to use more oil when cooking.
