Dubai United Arab Emirates;
Lucky Fish, the award-winning Best Mediterranean restaurant in Dubai and located in Palm West Beach, continues to purchase fish and seafood from local fishermen to serve fresh and delicious dishes to guests and support the local economy.
Since opening in 2021, Lucky Fish has purchased more than 25,000kg of sustainably caught seafood, including many types of fish, calamari, prawns, oysters and mussels displayed on its signature vintage schooner.
Some produce is sourced internationally, such as carabiner shrimp and octopus from Spain, but where possible, the focus is on purchasing fresh local produce.
“We focus on buying from local fishermen because they provide fresh produce to our guests,” said Dimitri Proud, owner of Lucky Fish. With the tough competition in Dubai, being able to provide fresh produce is a huge advantage in terms of quality that our discerning guests will appreciate. Also, because our suppliers know us so well, they understand our specific preferences and appreciate that we never compromise on quality, so they choose the best and made specifically for Lucky Fish.”
Proud added: “When we evaluate any product, we consider two main factors, quality and freshness. If these two conditions are met, everything else can be negotiated. Much of the highest quality produce can be sourced locally from our own waters, and it’s impossible to compare the freshest when you can serve night-caught fisherman food to guests the next day, which is essential, especially when it comes to seafood.”
Prior to opening Lucky Fish, our culinary team visited all the fish markets in the seven Emirates, and built strong relationships with the local fishing community, helping them access the freshest seafood available in the country.
Trots concluded: “Locally sourced products are environmentally friendly, often healthier, help the local economy and show that you care about what you offer to your customers. We believe that using everything possible in the UAE has been the key to Lucky Fish’s success. Locals appreciate the act, our regulars understand the value and quality and tourists want to explore what our region has to offer, so it’s a win-win situation for our restaurant and local economy.”
