Earlier this year, the release of Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2015-2020 urged Americans to eat seafood at least twice a week in place of other protein foods. The new report concludes that average seafood consumption is below recommendations for all U.S. age-sex groups.

According to Gautam Malla, senior brand manager of Genova Seafood, the new product line answers consumer demand for faster recipe preparation and portability. “Discerning foodies are seeking high-protein, convenient products that also deliver on taste. We’re thrilled to offer easy-open cans to allow time-crunched consumers to enjoy the decadent taste of Genova on-the-go.”

The product is available in most U.S. supermarkets, Clubs (Costco and BJs) and Walmart in 3- and 5-ounce individual cans, and 5- and 7-ounce quad packs.

To accompany the new packaging, Genova today launched Genova’s Easy Open Sweepstakes through November 26, 2016. Users who tag #GenovaSeafoodSweeps on social media have the chance to win a weekly giveaway Mediterranean-themed gift basket from Genova.

In honor of the new easy-open cans, Genova introduced a series of quick and easy recipes that showcase the rich taste of Genova:

Deconstructed Tuna Caesar Salad — Toasted French baguette alongside plated romaine hearts topped with rich and flavorful Genova, egg, garlic and parmesan and chives is a new twist on traditional Caesar Salad.

Tropical Tuna Lettuce Wraps — These lettuce wraps blend Genova Tuna with mango, mint, walnuts and coconut flakes for a healthy bite of paradise.

Tuna in Avocado with Red Onion — The savory taste of Genova combined with Greek yogurt, lemon juice, coriander, red onion, cucumber and cilantro spooned generously into avocado halves creates a perfect low-carb lunch.

Gourmet Tuna Nachos — Tortilla chips topped with Genova, lemon, parsley, rosemary, parmesan cheese, diced tomato, green onion and mozzarella cheese delivers a fresh take on the ultimate game-day snack.
