Chinese New Year Lo Hei: Salmon Yu Sheng with Jellyfish!

chinese new year lo hei yusheng jellyfish recipe
Be enticed by the prismatic colours and flavours in this traditional festive salad! It's the time of the year again for the Prosperity Toss aka #Yusheng ( 鱼生 ), a Teochew-style raw fish salad. Every Lunar New Year, Chinese folks will feast on this auspicious multi-coloured salad with different variations which I had highlighted in my past Lo Hei posts.

If you already know me, I love playing with food. Hence, I really enjoy making my own Yusheng, coming out with whatever designs I can think of. The latest I have made is this Smoked Salmon Yu Sheng with Jellyfish ( 发财鱼生捞海蜇 ) resembling an aquarium, with fishes swimming around a bed of seaweed on sandy ground.
