Happy May, Seafoodies!
With Mother’s Day right around the corner, the requests for seafood brunch recipes have been pouring in. Brunch conjures up that leisurely mealtime hovering between breakfast and lunch with special savories and sweets (and, dare we say, a mimosa). Seafood brings an undeniable specialness to every occasion, Our May Meal Plan is devoted to seafood brunch recipes that can be served as an entree or a full brunch buffet. Let’s dig in.
In addition to smoked salmon and lox, which make regular appearances at brunch time, sweet and flavorful shellfish pairs beautifully with eggs, bread and other late-morning fare. As a bonus, seafood provides an extra protein boost so it fills you up without weighing you down.
As you’re menu-planning, tap into Mom’s favorites. Shrimp fans will love our not-just-for-Millennials shrimp and avocado toast or a cheesy breakfast casserole layered with shrimp, swiss cheese and kale. Is the guest of honor a connoisseur of crab?
Showcase its delicate flavor in a fabulous crab frittata or a lightened-up crabby eggs Benedict. And then there’s salmon — how about colorful, cast-iron hash with smoked salmon or a luscious lox omelet with Everything Bagel seasoning? Yum!
The Moms in your life will love these healthy and delicious brunch recipes. These seafood dishes are loaded with protein, antioxidants and essential nutrients, helping you treat Mom like the rock star she is. Happy Mother’s Day! You’ll find these recipes and more in our Meal Plan!
