My husband is an avid fisherman. Lots of Salmon in the freezer from Pulaski to use up so this sounded great! We liked all the veggies in there and cooking in milk was a great way to prepare this and get that strong fishy taste out of the fish. I was not able to find wheat germ in my local grocery store but I did find wheat bran. Other than that I did it just as explained. We both liked it but it was too "runny" I would not add all of the milk next time I would add some than mash it up and see if I needed more. Other that that this was great! I also tried a couple patties with Chipotle Panko crumbs on the outside and they were our favorites. Thanks for sharing we will be trying this again with some modifications. Maybe some of that shredded zucchini that is in the freezer instead of white potatoes and crushed flax instead of wheat bran.
