Dive into Dinner: Why Seafood Breakfast Recipes are a Dinner Winner

Who says breakfast is only for the morning? Breakfast for dinner, also known as “brinner,” has become a popular go-to at Dish on Fish! It’s a fun way to break out of a meal rut and enjoy your favorite breakfast dishes at the end of the day. Seafood is an excellent choice for a breakfast-inspired evening feast for many reasons.

For starters, seafood, including salmon, tuna and shrimp, is rich in essential nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, protein, vitamins and minerals. Enjoying seafood breakfasts for dinner is not only fun—but also boosts the nutritional value of your meal! And since seafood-based breakfasts tend to be lighter than traditional evening meals, they can also be a great choice as a healthier dinner option. 

What’s more, seafood offers remarkable versatility in the kitchen. Enjoy classic dishes like shrimp and egg breakfast burritos, or get creative with lox omelets, smoked salmon breakfast pizza or savory crab frittata squares! Seafood dishes like these come together quickly, making them ideal for busy evenings. You can have a satisfying dinner on the table in no time, allowing you to relax and savor your meal (yes, please!).

So, the next time you’re contemplating what to have for dinner, consider breaking the breakfast barrier and diving into a delicious seafood recipe! We’ve gathered up some of our favorites to get you started on making “brinner” a staple in your home.
