(MENAFN - Arab News) LuLu Hypermarket is organizing a seafood festival in Riyadh and Dammam.
Hussain Hiji Nadery, director general, Department of Marine Fisheries, Saudi Arabia, will open the festival in Riyadh at 5 p.m. on Wednesday (Dec. 11)
The prime focus of the five-day event is to showcase the abundance of the Saudi coast with a variety of fish from Jazan, Dammam and Jeddah.
The Department of Marine Fisheries has made full preparations to ensure the availability of the local fish in its freshness; this will give an indication of the fishermen's output.
Given the cosmopolitan clientele and culture of LuLu, the seafood festival will broaden its horizon to exhibit the fresh import ranges like fresh Norwegian salmon, smoked salmon, Italian mixed seafood, Egyptian tilapias, Atlantic mackerel, rainbow trout, crab, mussel and squids.
A special corner for shrimps and lobsters is also arranged.
Import ranges from different parts of the world, including oyster, cod fillet, sea brass, Canadian lobster and Black Sea bream, will create an ambience of global ocean resources gathering at one point.
Customers may also witness crab meat roll, fish sauces and other special varieties.
"All imported and local fishes are available at competitive rates," said Ashraf Thalapady, deputy general manager, LuLu Hypermarket.
An active complimentary participation from all the other sections of the hypermarket will spice up the festival.
Majority of the production of the hot food section will be allocated to seafood during these days.
An variety of fish and chips, grilled fish and fish salads are expected to highlight the festival.
The bakery section is to contribute by exhibiting fish pizzas, fish bun, fish puffs, etc.
"A healthy diet always contains fish, a protein food with fewer calories than other meat sources. It's also nature's most versatile food. You can steam, grill, poach and curry fish. Moreover, the presence of Omega 03 fatty acids make it even more preferable, especially when you get it in sea freshness with a throwaway price tag." said Abdullah Al-Enaizi, manager at LuLu.
