七彩魚生( Prosperity Yee Sang)

 七彩魚生,又称捞起捞魚生捞生
多於人日(正月初七)食用,代替七菜羹或七菜粥;
是马来西亚及新加坡过农历新年時的特色贺年食品。
Eating Yee Sang during Chinese New Year is a cultural activity for Chinese living in Singapore and Malaysia. 
Most Chinese consume it on Renri
the seventh day of the Chinese New Year.


 七彩缤纷的魚生有七彩灿烂的好意头,
而“撈起魚生”這个名称,
又有「风生水起」及「越撈越旺」的意头。
Yee Sang   literally means "raw fish" but since "fish (鱼)" is commonly conflated with its homophone "abundance (余)". 
Therefore,Yee Sang is considered a symbol of abundance, prosperity and vigor.

  ( Prosperity Yee Sang)

材料 :
蔬菜:青瓜,白罗卜,红罗卜,紫包菜 ,疯柑叶 
水果:雪梨丝和柚子肉
腌制料红姜丝,芒果丝,腌姜片(超市零食部)。
香脆料:包装薄脆,包装花生芝麻(各一包)
香料:五香粉,胡椒粉(适量)
酱料:酸梅酱,麻油,水,麦芽糖(3 :1:2:1: 的比例),小火水滚煮溶麦芽糖,调入麻油和酸梅酱,搅拌至稠度适中即可。

做法:
1.   所有蔬菜和水果洗净后切丝,连同腌制材料和香脆料一起排在盘上。
2.   洒上花生碎,芝麻粒,五香粉和胡椒粉。
3.   淋上酱料,众人捞匀即可享用。



这种包装花生芝麻和薄脆,
真的让七彩鱼生的准备功夫减轻不少。
With these store-bought Bo Cui cracker 
and peanut & sesame seed mix,
we can save time and avoid a fiddly job.



( Prosperity Yee Sang)
Ingedients :
Vegetables : Cucumber,carrot radish,purple cabbage,kaffir lime leaves.
fruit : asian pear, pomelo flesh,
pickle : red ginger,dry mango,ginger(available at supermarket)
crispy bite : Bo Cui Cracker,Groundnut & Sesame Seed Mix
Spices : five-spice powder, white pepper
Sauce :  (3tbsp sweet plum sauce, 1tbsp sesame oil, 2tbsp water, 1tbsp maltose syrup.) Melt the maltose syrup with water at low flame,add in sesame oil and sweet plum sauce, mix well,set aside.

Method :
1. Clean and julienne all vegetables and fruits,arranged them together with pickle and crispy bite in a circle on a large serving plate.
2. Sprinkle peanuts sesame seeds, five-spices and white pepper,then drizzle sauce over the ingredients.
3. Toss it and enjoy !

温馨提点: 
1。 青瓜需去籽才刨丝,以免出水。
2。 雪梨需泡盐水沥干再刨丝,以免氧化。
3。 疯柑叶丝只需约1茶匙,以免过多苦涩。
4。 酱料的酸甜,稠度,可以自我调配。 
5。  原本鱼生应该要配上生鱼片,但是有时新鲜鱼片难寻或配合吃素的人客,往往生鱼片就被删掉了。 

Tips:
1. Remove the seeds from the cucumber and julienne it.
2. Skin the Asian pear and immerse in salt water before julienne.
3. To prevent a bitter taste, one teaspoon of shredded kaffir lime leaves is enough.
4. The sauce and flavorings can be adjusted to fit your taste.
5. Normally, the Yee Sang is eaten with raw fish slices, but sometimes fresh fish is difficult to obtain, or to make the dish suitable for vegetarian friends, the fish can be omitted.


其实这是我在年初三到哥哥家吃饭时,
做了人生的第一盘七彩鱼生,
希望来年会做得更好。
My first ever homemade " Prosperity Yee Sang",
served when I had dinner with my brother on the 3rd day of CNY.

并祝各位马年,越捞越发!

    1. 你知道安迪最贪玩,新年嘛,当然玩到够,
      你住得远,不然你也一起来捞。
      最喜欢就是大家一起夹起鱼生乱捞乱叫,那种家人或好友团聚的闹气,很搭实。
