UNO Lobster Roll with Tarragon Mayonnaise and Bacon

(NewsUSA) - Lobster history in America dates back to the pre-colonial era when Native Americans found the crustacean in abundance all across beaches of the area that came to be known as New England. The state of Maine took hold of the market in the 19th century, and today, lobster is considered a top seafood delicacy.

While Maine is generally known as the land of the lobster, chefs all across the country have taken this claw-snapping creature and added a variety of flair and pizzazz to make it even more mouth-watering. The culinary experts at UNO have taken the traditional lobster roll and added the taste of fresh tarragon and crispy bacon to create a dish that is truly special.

With summer coming, this is a great lobster dish that's quick and easy to make, and will be a big hit at your next party or family dinner.

4. Spoon the lobster salad evenly between the buns. Serve with pickles and French fries or potato chips on the side.

U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish Cooks up Healthy Weeknights

Catfish Almondine

(NewsUSA) - Chances are, you've heard words and phrases like "omega-3s," "lean protein" and "heart health" associated with fish. And yet, when you come home from work, cooking fish just sounds like too much effort. But U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish can change that thought.

Catfish is actually one of the quickest meals you can prepare. The following recipe, for example, only involves nine minutes of active cooking time. For the same amount of time it takes to mix up a box of mac 'n'cheese, you can eat a nutritious dinner that looks and tastes like it took great skill to prepare.

U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish, which are sustainably raised, are low in saturated fat, high in protein and a moderate source of omega-3 fatty acids. Combining the fish with almonds makes for an especially beneficial meal, as almonds contain healthy fats, antioxidants, and vitamins and minerals, including vitamin E, magnesium and potassium. And the almonds in Catfish Almondine offer loads of additional protein.

Catfish Almondine

Serves 2


2 U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish Fillets

2 tablespoons butter, divided

1/4 cup slivered almonds

1 lemon, zested and juiced


1) Melt one tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Once the butter has melted, place the catfish fillets serving side down, and cook them for four minutes, or until they appear nicely browned.

2) Flip the fillets. Cook them for an additional four minutes or until they're browned and flaky. Remove the fillets from the skillet and set them aside.

3) Add the remaining butter to the skillet. Add the almonds, zest and lemon juice. Cook the almonds for one minute or until they begin to brown.

4) Place the catfish on a plate and serve them with the almondine sauce.
