Yu Sheng Sashimi Salad

Yu Sheng Sashimi Salad

Yusheng Salad

From Nik : This is a dish that was recommended to us by a customer here at the shop for the Chinese New Year but in researching I couldn’t find much about it in my Chinese cookbooks and I wanted to get it right get, so I contacted my sister-in-law whose family cooks the most amazing Malaysian/Singaporean food. Thank you LeAnn for your help on this ! Lou Hei !

Basically the work is in thinly slicing and assembling it, pour over the sauce then have everyone get together and toss it with chopsticks 

LeAnn’s thoughts -Yes it's very common for people in Malaysia/Singapore to make this dish when celebrating Chinese New Year 🙂 and yes, I would recommend it too as it is delicious!!!! Every element/ingredient in the salad signifies a type of well wish, for example, noodles for long life, crispy pastry for prosperity. It's a really nice way for family to celebrate together as you all stand around the salad with chopsticks, and together stir the salad so that all the ingredients mix together. Then everyone eats it together !
