For those of you who don’t know what’s on the plate, it is none other than the famed Chinese New Year dish Yee Sang – a Teochew style raw fish salad. It consists of strips of raw fish and shredded vegetables, tossed together with a variety of sauces and condiments. This dish is also known as the ‘Prosperity Toss’ (Lo Hei) and considered a symbol of abundance, prosperity and vigor.
The one our office had (picture above) featured salmon; I do wonder….what fish was in the original dish back then?
Also…is there a specific assortment of vegetables used, or can we prepare this dish with any combination?
