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.

    I’ve eaten at a Legal Seafood before and it was very good. That sausage sound delicious (never had lamb sausage before). I’m definitely not a fan of curry, but everything you mentioned in the entree are my favs for seafood. I’m with you until the desert. I’ve held strong to my New Year’s resolution of watching what I’m eating and only have desert once (ok sometimes twice) a week. I’m even looking into joining gym since the Boston Sports Clubs are having a January deal where it only costs $20.08 to join. You’ve definitely gotten me in the mood for seafood now, I guess my only question is if it’s lobster season yet?
