Swordfish Breakfast Tacos

We had a piece of swordfish left from supper a few nights ago (remember, Pat didn’t eat all of hers), so I decided to try a new wrinkle for breakfast.  My ingredients were:

2”x2”x1” piece of grilled swordfish, chopped small
I green onion, sliced
1 pat of butter
2 eggs
1 tbsp cream
S&P to taste
1/3 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
4-5 tbsp tomato/caper sauce, leftover from swordfish meal
1 leaf romaine lettuce, chopped
Three 6” corn tortillas

Add butter to pan over medium low heat (on our range) then sweat the onion white part for a few minutes to soften.  Add the swordfish and cook until warmed through.

Beat together the eggs, cream, S&P, add to the pan along with the cheese and onion tops and scramble to desired doneness – wet for me.

While the eggs are cooking, nuke the sauce and heat the tortillas on a griddle until warm and pliable.

Add 1/3 of the egg mixture to each tortilla, top with sauce and lettuce, fold and enjoy.

I thought they were delicious with the fish flavor coming through but not overpowering - same for the sauce.  I'd grill swordfish just to make these again and believe the normal fish taco sauces would work also work well.  We finished off the sauce with some sauteed crappie for supper and it worked very well again.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.

  1. Definitely a great and inventive use of those leftovers! Tacos for breakfast sound so tasty.

  2. Breakfast fish tacos.. I love it!!

  3. I need a breakfast chef. Are you available?

  4. I've never tried swordfish. Your breakfast looks much better than the bowl of cereal I had this morning!

  5. You really need to create a cookbook with your leftover breakfasts... you have a gift Larry! The tacos look amazing.

  6. Do you dry heat your tortillas on the griddle? or add Pam? or oil?

  7. Larry, Your immagination seems to know no bounds! Swordfish, egg and cheese breakfast tacos... Out of sight! The leftover king strikes again... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  8. that's the best name I ever heard for a dish

  9. You are so dang creative, Larry, very inspired cooking!
