Happy National Science Fiction Day! We decided this year that we want to bring you, our readers, even more geeky content. In doing so, we’ve been doing lots of research! One of the things that came up was this holiday! While reading more about the date, we also learned that the date of National Science Fiction Day was chosen because it corresponds with Isaac Asimov’s birthday. We thought it would be fun to share some of our favorite science fiction recipes in honor of the holiday!
Xenomorph Egg Cups inspired by Alien Covenant– They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Why not start the day with a little science fiction? These egg cups are as easy as they are delicious!
Spirited Noodles inspired by Blade Runner 2049– This recipe is inspired by a dish we tried at San Diego Comicon. A little bit boozy (Johnnie Walker was a movie sponsor after all) and a lot tasty, this dish is the perfect main dish for the holiday!
Salmon Crudo with Crystallized Fennel and Spinach “Pasta” inspired by Life– Looking to test your molecular gastronomy skills? Maybe you just want to impress people with your cooking skills. Either way this recipe looks way harder than it is and it sure to impress!
The Alpha Tonic inspired by Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets– Last but not least, we have a cocktail for National Science Fiction Day! Who doesn’t love a cocktail that glows under a black light? The secret is in the tonic water!
We hope you’ve enjoyed our little round up of science fiction recipes! Do you have a favorite geeky holiday you’d like us to write about? How about a science fiction movie you’d like a recipe for?

Loving the movie/food pairings here. I will admit I have not seen any of these (although you are speaking hubby’s language for sure). If I don’t watch the movies…at least I can make the food LOL!
Totally loving this post! I love that you paired different foods with scifi movies 🙂

Black light reactive drinks?! Sign me up, any reason to relive the “OMG look how white your shirt is!” moments from high school dances haha. I’d also need to booze to forget those memories 😉
I’m all over that salmon crudo if someone else makes it for me! I had no idea today was National Science Fiction Day! I wish someone would invent that box that was in Star Trek next gen where food they wanted would just appear… but then whats the point of food bloggers then???
