At Sallet Al Sayad, we offer a wide range of seafood dishes that will satisfy your cravings and delight your palate. And we also have a selection of drinks that will enhance the flavor and texture of each dish, creating a harmonious and memorable dining experience.

In this blog post, we will give you some tips on how to choose the right drink for your seafood dishes at Sallet Al Sayad, based on the type of fish, the cooking method, and the sauce or seasoning. Whether you prefer wine, beer, or non-alcoholic beverages, we have something for everyone. Here are some examples of our seafood dishes and what drinks would pair well with them:

  • Grilled hammour with lemon butter sauce: This is one of our signature dishes, featuring a succulent and tender hammour fillet grilled to perfection and topped with a tangy and creamy lemon butter sauce. To complement this dish, we recommend a crisp and refreshing white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio. These wines have a high acidity that balances the richness of the butter and enhances the delicate flavor of the fish. They also have citrus and herbal notes that echo the lemon sauce and the fresh herbs garnishing the dish. You can enjoy this dish with a green salad or some roasted vegetables on the side, for a light and balanced meal.
  • Fried calamari with garlic dip: This is a classic appetizer that everyone loves, featuring crispy and golden fried calamari rings served with a zesty and savory garlic dip. To contrast this dish, we suggest a light and fruity rosé wine, such as Grenache or Syrah. These wines have a low tannin level that does not interfere with the fried batter and a moderate acidity that cuts through the oiliness. They also have berry and floral aromas that complement the garlic dip and add some freshness to the dish. You can share this dish with your friends or family, as it is perfect for dipping and nibbling.
  • Seafood beryani: This is a hearty and flavorful main course that showcases the diversity of our cuisine, featuring a fragrant and spicy rice dish cooked with a variety of seafood, such as shrimp, squid, mussels, and crab. We recommend spicy and aromatic red wine, such as Shiraz or Zinfandel, to match this dish. These wines have a full body and a high alcohol content that can stand up to the spices’ intensity and the rice dish’s complexity. They also have dark fruit and pepper flavors that echo the seafood’s sweetness and the spices’ heat. You can savor this dish with some yogurt or raita on the side for a cooling effect.

But these are not the only options you have at Sallet Al Sayad. We also offer other seafood dishes, such as lobster thermidor, shrimp scampi, fish and chips, seafood paella, and more. And we have other drinks to suit your preferences, such as sparkling wine, beer, juice, tea, coffee, and water. You can ask our friendly staff for more recommendations or browse our menu online.
