Surf and Turf Eggs Benedict Recipe

30Jul11

My family and I have been going to Rosarito Mexico for several years. I’m back again for a bachelor party dudes trip, which inspired this recipe.

Las Gaviotas

Las Gaviotas

I started a tradition during one of our trips to Las Gaviotas where on at least one morning, I would make a Mexican twist on the old breakfast fav Eggs Benedict. I’d call it Eggs Benedicto – adding salsa and lime to the hollandaise sauce.

This weekend resurrected the tradition although we changed it up a bit. Having so much left over BBQ’d filet mignon, we collectively agreed in between margaritas to make a surf and turf Eggs Benedict for breakfast. We had Aunt Penny’s Hollandaise sauce. We had the English muffins and butter. We had lots of left over filet mignon. Now we just needed lobster. So it was off to Popotla Fishing Village in Rosarito by the Fox Studios lot.

We needed to find a very large lobster so that we could cut the lobster tail in medallion shaped pieces. Off to the beachfront for some fresh fish.
