Home delivery at wholesale prices ….
I adore seafood so was elated when Gulf Seafood followed me on Twitter a couple of months back. I was even more delighted when this long-established supplier to the trade announced they were starting a new delivery service to individuals …. but at wholesale prices. I bided my time and a couple of days ago Gulf Seafood announced they were offering an on-line ordering service, with delivery around Dubai.
I was straight onto their website, and completed my on-line registration in no time. Then it was time to shop!! boy did I shop, the prices are absolutely amazing. My basket soon filled up with Jonah Crab Claws (35 AED/500g), Jumbo Breaded Prawns (10 AED/250g), Breaded Baby Scallop (15 AED/250g) and some Breaded Calamari Rings (8 AED/250g). Content with my seafood haul I was onto the fish section where I bagged some Skinless Plaice Fillets (35 AED/kg) and some raw Salmon Fillets (35 AED/500g). All their fish/seafood is frozen but don’t let this stop you from ordering, technology today when it comes to freezing at sea is amazing. I pressed the order button and the whole lot was delivered to the door the following evening.
Was it good you are asking? hell yeah! seeing as I was their first customer to order on-line they gave me as sample box of Prawn Balls, Breaded Fish, Prawn Samosas and Prawn Spring Rolls. I shallow fried the entire contents of box prior to writing this review and they were all absolutely delicious. Last night we pan fried some of the plaice fillets, beautiful! If you are planning a party or like me you are just a bit crazy on anything edible from the sea then you have got to give them a try!
