Auspicious dishes to serve for the Lunar New Year

Chinese New Year is upon us, and if you’re now in the realm of panicked preparations for what to serve during the reunion dinner, worry not – here are some quick guidelines to follow!

Serve fish to usher in a year of prosperity
Because phonetically, fish sounds like ‘yu’, which means prosperity, it is common practice to serve a whole fish with head and tail intact during the reunion dinner!
Try: Steaming the fish with pickled mustard vegetables, sour plums, tomatoes, shiaoxing wine, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, and ginger.
