The first thing that comes to mind when I think of Coral Seafood is “have it your way.” I had a chance to catch up with Chef K. George, Executive Chef earlier this week and was incredibly impressed with how flexible they are about preparing fresh seafood and accompaniments in whatever style that suits you. The menu is filled with mouthwatering entrees and sides but you can also have your food prepared completely to your liking and nutritional goals. Fresh seafood is hand selected daily by the Coral Seafood team directly from the source at Boston Pier.
If you want your fish steamed, grilled, or cooked without any oil, they are more than happy to accommodate. They offer a variety of types of fish and seafood each day. The choices for side dishes are plentiful as well and again, they want your meal to be exactly what you would like to eat. Coral Seafood prides itself on serving all fresh vegetables. Each day, there is a whole grain side dish, steamed vegetables, grilled vegetables and a fresh fruit plate to name a few. Whole wheat pasta is always available as an option in their pasta entrees as well.
Chef K. George let me know that Coral Seafood is becoming a completely “from scratch” kitchen. Everything is going to be made in house. Currently, she and her team are working on some new WooFood certified dishes. One of the new dishes is being featured on Coral Seafood’s special menu for Worcester Restaurant Week . It is “Salmon In a Bag” – elegant salmon cooked to perfection in parchment paper with fresh herbs, lemon, wine and vegetables. This is part of a 3 course prix fixe menu available for $23.14 during Restaurant Week (February 24- March 8). Check out the whole Coral Seafood Restaurant Week menu to choose an appetizer and dessert that can also fit in with your healthful eating plan.
“Savoring the simple goodness and purity of our seafood is the essence of good eating,” is the quote on Coral Seafood’s website and this is certainly what I felt when talking with Chef K. George. In the mood for seafood? Try WooFood certified Coral Seafood for lunch or dinner!
