Legal Seafood Specials
Tonight I had the opportunity to visit Legal Seafoods at the Pru and enjoyed myself thoroughly. Since it was something of an occasion, I opted to splurge and the specials sounded very good.
For an appetizer there was a lamb sausage. I thought this was really nice, but I was glad there were only three of us because we only received three pieces. Perhaps they deliberately portion a sausage for the number of diners, but the plate was just right for three pieces. The sausage was well spiced and tasty, but I don’t think the fact that it was lamb brought anything to the table. They overpowered it. Still tasty.
For an entree I had a bowl of seafood in curry. This was really interesting and I did not think it would be as good as it was. There was a variety of seafood here – scallops, white fish, shrimp, a large lobster claw, and a king crab leg. This was served over a bed of couscous and in a light bit of curry sauce. They used green curry and it was very subtle and smooth. I liked this a lot and think they should keep it around. Excellent!
For desert I had a red bean custard with cinnamon and covered with almonds. Two quarters of a strawberry and a mint leaf garnished this and, while I felt that neither really went with the desert for flavor, the dish really needed that color. Still, it was delicious and I’d eat it again.
All in all a very nice dinner. If you’re in the mood to try some new seafood at a an old favorite, give this a shot.
