There might be a panic over seafood sustainability, but Legal Sea Foods CEO Roger Berkowitz isn’t taking the bait. Instead, he’s hosting a dinner on January 24 with the New England Culinary Guild to address "outdated" scientific findings that turn the dining public against certain species of fish. Behold, a special feast featuring items that people often think are outlawed or blacklisted. There’s wine pairings, too. Click through for outtakes from the menu and details.
Black tiger shrimp, duck cracklings, smoked tomato, and avocado sauce
Spaghetti squash, toasted pecans, melting marrow gremolata
Prosciutto Wrapped Hake
Braised escarole, Rancho Gordo beans, blood orange marmalade
Citrus Almond Cake
Yuzu semi freddo, candied kumquats
Guests are invited to ask questions about how to read between the lines of media reports. Dinner begins at 7 p.m. at the Park Square Legal Sea Foods; tickets are $110 for non-Guild members.
