The New “Must Try” PC Insiders Collection w/Meal Recipes & Giveaway

It is mid-March and even though…THIS…happened overnight, I am still hopeful that spring is on the way!

Insiders Collection

The days are getting longer, the temperatures are getting into the “plus” column and the sun is starting to emit some heat…not a lot of heat, mind you, but definitely things are warming up. I have even seen some brave robins flying among the trees in our backyard.

I don’t know about you, but I am longing for barbecues, beaches and sipping a glass of something cold on the back deck.

If like me, you are hoping to jumpstart this season, President’s Choice® has just the collection. They are bringing back the warmth of spring with some new, not to be missed, “Must Trys” from the  PC Insiders Collection.

This recipe for Cod and Dill Fish Cakes with Spring Pea Salad is simple to throw together and can be easily doubled to suit your family. Finish it off with, No-Bake Lemon Kefir Mini Cheesecakes (make first or the night before to allow for chilling time) and you have a delicious dinner on the table in record time!

 Insiders Collection

Tucked into each of the crispy PC® Cod and Dill Fish Cakes is a pocket of creamy sauce, meaning each bite gets a taste of mild, buttery cod and bold dill. Use light pressure when zesting the lemon for the salad dressing—you only want to scrape off the yellow zest, as the white pith underneath is bitter.

Notes
TIP: Use a paring knife to snip the ends and pull off the tough strings that run along both sides of the sugar snap pea pods.
TIP: Tucked into each of the crispy PC® Cod and Dill Fish Cakes is a pocket of creamy sauce, meaning each bite gets a taste of mild, buttery cod and bold dill.

 Insiders Collection

Creamy kefir and bright lemon curd give these single-serving cheesecakes a bold tangy flavour that’s a delicious departure from overly sweet desserts. Feel free to swap out the blueberries and coconut for other toppings, such as sliced fresh strawberries and basil or diced mango, mint and macadamia nuts.
