Pelican brings East Coast shellfish celebration to Ottawa
It’s a SHELL-abration of epic proportions as Pelican Seafood Market & Grill joins up with the PEI Shellfish Festival to bring PEI mussels, oysters and lobster at their peak of their season to Ottawa seafood fans.
September 9, 2021
OTTAWA, ONTARIO: The end of summer is prime time to enjoy shellfish and Pelican Seafood Market & Grill is going all out this year! In partnership with the PEI Shellfish Festival, Chef Ben is cooking up new, limited-time menu items featuring PEI mussels, oysters, lobster and shrimp! Be sure to show up early as Pelican has also introduced a Shellfish Happy Hour!
“The quality of shellfish from PEI is phenomenal at this time of year,” raves Jim Foster, owner of Pelican Seafood Market & Grill. “This is absolutely the best time of the year for mussels, oysters and lobster from Canada’s East Coast.”
With Pelican operating as a satellite location for the PEI Shellfish Festival, seafood fans can gather with friends and family to enjoy top-notch shellfish and the East Coast festival vibe without travelling to the island. Watch the festival’s oyster shucking contest or its many concerts on-screen while enjoying your own lobster and oysters close to home. It all begins September 16th.
“This is the first year we’ve partnered with the PEI Shellfish Festival, but we have always supported our Atlantic seafood producers. This collaboration will allow our customers to experience all the best aspects of the festival without leaving Ontario. Come SHELL-abrate with us!”
Oyster fans – do not miss the new Shellfish Happy Hour. Premium PEI oysters are the stars of the Happy Hour, which runs daily from 2:00 to 4:30 pm. And you can SHELL-abrate in style with a shrimp cocktail and champagne cocktail sauce, served in a martini glass.
Limited time features on the menu for the festival include mussel chowder, a new pasta dish with PEI mussels and our delicious marinated mussels.
The Pelican team thanks the many sponsors who are participating in this ode to PEI seafood: Atlantic Aqua Farms, Calabogie Brewing Co., Dunrobin Distilleries, Irish Point Oysters, Motts Clamato and Raspberry Point Oysters.
