Please note this post was quite a few years ago and according to the comments I am getting, clearly the quality of this product has gone downhill!
It is my turn to apologize to President’s Choice! It has taken me too long to get to the final product of the latest mystery box delivery. Time-sensitive posts took over and BTW, this product review is completely inspired by Reg since this is his type of product. (I am not a fan of fish cakes.)
As you know, I have tried making Reg fish cakes in the past and finally came up with a recipe he liked. Still, I would be thrilled to find an economical fish cake product for him so I can have a night off in the kitchen.
PC Melt in the Middle Sustainably Sourced Cod Fish Cakes can be found in the frozen fish section of your Superstore next to the Salmon and Smoked Haddock Fish Cakes.
When Reg first saw these in the store he was shocked that two fish cakes could cost $5.99 when he used to get a giant bag of them for just over $10!
“With a crunchy golden breadcrumb coating on the outside, tucked away inside each cod and potato fish cake is a creamy lemon dill and sauce center. Made with mild-tasting wild Atlantic cod, these fish cakes are ideal as family dinner served with vegetables or salad.”
Reg also is not a fan of either lemon OR dill with fish so this was going to be interesting.
Inside The Box
The first thing I noticed when I opened the package was, holy cow, those fish cakes are HUGE!
If you put two of Reg’s old fish cakes on top of each other, that would come close to the height of these fish cakes.
I put them on a parchment-lined baking sheet and cooked them in the oven.
Reg really loved how crunchy the outside of the fish cakes are…
In comparison to the soft inside. He did not find the fill or lemon too strong so overall, he really liked these fish cakes.
“Are they worth $6 for just two?”
He said yes, they were! I was shocked. Clearly these are elevated fish cakes and so large that only two actually fed Reg enough food for dinner. I was thrilled! I will definitely be buying these again in the future to give me a night off and to make Reg a happy foodie camper.
Reg gives this product four out of five wooden spoons.
