We’ve always thought breakfast for dinner is a winner. Add seafood-inspired recipes and it’s a slam-dunk for a fun, twist on “brinner” to wake-up your weeknight dinner routine. Seafood stars in creations like smoked salmon mini-pancakes, shrimp and broccoli frittata, avocado and crab bennys and more.
One reason to incorporate seafood breakfast ideas into dinnertime is that you are guaranteed to have a meal that’s nutrient-packed including fiber-rich carbohydrates, protein and heart-healthy fat. This will keep everyone going until the next morning (think evening homework brain food). We talk often about striving to eat 3 weekly servings of seafood, as recommended by the current dietary guidelines.
So, let’s head to the kitchen and pick one of these brinner recipes for dinner tonight.
Shrimp and Broccoli Frittata
Enjoy a dinner of tender shrimp layered in fluffy eggs, fresh vegetables and melty cheese. This super nutritious dish is packed with heart-healthy protein, complex B vitamins, essential omega- 3s and a whole lot of flavor.
Smoked Salmon and Dill Mini Pancakes with Horseradish Dip
A half cup of smoked salmon takes this savory pancake recipe up a notch. Added extras like dill and capers complements the smoked salmon and creates a completely new spin on the traditional dish of locks and bagels.
Easy Avocado and Crab Bennys
Benny’s aren’t just for brunch! Enjoy this crab-topped benedict with a perfectly poached egg (it’s easy, we promise) and some “good fat” avocado.
Tuna and Mushroom Egg Bake
In the same way it’s crucial to start your day with a dish full of nutrition (like healthy fats, lean protein, and flavorful veggies), it’s also important to end your day the same way. This recipe does just that! The egg and tuna add lean protein to the mix, while the healthy omega-3 fatty acids from the tuna compliment the mushrooms.
