“A seafood spread has long held a cherished spot on Australian Christmas tables, which is why ALDI has worked closely with its trusted partners to offer seafood staples and gourmet options at the lowest possible prices this festive season,” according to the retailer.
Tried and tested, and back on the menu this year include the Lobster Tails with Garlic Butter Glaze (2pk/$34.99), 1kg Frozen Australian Tiger Prawns ($26.99), and Extra-Large Scallops wrapped in Maple Flavoured Bacon (6pk/$13.99).
