‘Sea Food Differently with Al Halabi’

What do restaurants, cafes, neighbourhood supermarkets and mega-malls have in common? The answer is that they are all bringing the ocean to your table: from sheri, tilapia and mackerel through to shrimp, tuna and trout, the sheer choice and diversity has never been greater. And seafood continues to grow in popularity too, with many fish, when baked, broiled, pan seared or grilled, offering a lean, low-fat dietary option to traditional proteins, something that is of growing interest to today’s health-conscious consumer.

Seafood is loved all around the world, and although there are several cities across the GCC region noted for their outstanding seafood, some of the best is undoubtedly to be found in Dubai. This should come as no surprise, as it is located on the shores of the Arabian Gulf and, therefore, simply couldn’t be closer to the source.

Fresh fish is a hot trend in Dubai; you can even order it online and have it delivered. But wherever you buy your seafood from, chefs and fishmongers need to use a variety of tools and equipment to prepare it safely and correctly. Display cabinets, ice-making machines, preparation and washing areas, refrigerators, special machines to clean the skins – the list is long, and the better the equipment the better the finished product. And that’s where Al Halabi comes in.

Creating impulse sales is just one of the benefits of a well-crafted display, and with Al Halabi you can choose from a wide range, including upright displays, counters, or counter mounted units. Whatever your preference, Al Halabi will ensure that you receive a robust and reliable product with varying choices in dimensions, finishes and designs.

Then there is ice, which is essential for keeping the displayed fish cool, and so a good ice-making machine is vital. Correct temperature control is difficult and potentially dangerous with just a refrigerated slab and no ice. Consequently, a bed of ice should be laid beneath the fish and a further sprinkling of ice on and around the fish will keep it cool more efficiently and enhance its appearance.

Storing, preparing and displaying seafood is a lot more complicated than many people believe. So it’s good that Al Halabi has unrivalled expertise in this specialist arena that goes back decades! Indeed, whatever your requirement, it has the skills and knowledge to design, manufacture, install and maintain the finest commercial kitchen and retail equipment on the market, giving you total peace-of-mind … whilst ensuring that you never feel like a fish out of water in what is a most certainly a specialist sector of the market.
