Pretty Chinese New Year Fu Gui Cai with Razor Clams (富贵菜炒鲍贝)

how to cook fugui cai for cny
Usually found only during the Chinese New Year season, this unique vegetable comes in a beautiful rosette with dark green leaves. The name Fu Gui Cai (富贵菜) means Prosperity Vegetables in English.

So how does it taste like? Looking at the dark leafy vegetables, most would've thought the taste would somewhat be on the bitter side, like the Kailan. But I would think the #FuGui vegetables tasted more like Baby Cabbages, or what we call Bok Choy (小白菜).

  10. Hi Shirley!
    The results is indeed eye-catching, Shirley! I have never had razor clams from a can. I wonder if they taste anything like the fresh ones. Many people here would discard razor clams if they found them while clam digging. Our family always saved them but I don't remember how we use to eat them, lol...Your dish looks amazing, Shirley. I'm sure a house full of guests would love it!!! Thank you so much for sharing...

    1. Louise, I'm not familiar with razor clams at all until my mom gave a can to me. They must be cheap in your home town! Wonder how the live ones look like......

      Delete
    2. I don't know if they are still inexpensive on Long Island, Shirley because I don't live there anymore. They have a shell like regular clams but it is softer and it is not as round. It is skinny almost like a finger:) they are usually not as tough as regular clams either. I'm sure you can find a picture online. Hope this helps, Louise

  22. I just saw this vege for the first time at Tesco. Google the recipe and found your blog. Decided to give it a try coz it looks so yummy!

    One question though, does this mean you don't need to cook the vege at all??

    1. You'll enjoy fugui chai if you like kailan. As per photo steps above, you'll need to blanch the vegetables first, meaning put it in boiling water then remove it after couple of minutes so that you won't over cook it to retain the crunch.

      It's great having you here & hope to see more of you. Do check out the rest of the CNY recipes I've been posting the past week. Have fun cooking & Happy CNY!
