Yusheng is an unique Chinese New Year dish that is very Malaysian and Singaporean. It’s a must-have dish to be served, heralding the arrival of Chinese New Year. Each component of the dish has an auspicious meaning. Tossing it high up, joyously shouting auspicious words is such a celebration!
For a twist, we did beetroot citrus cured salmon. The beetroot dyes the salmon a rich ruby hue that screams Chinese New Year. The subtle taste of juniper and citrus of gin with the citrus zests gives it a zing to tease the palate. To follow up with this taste profile, our Yusheng sauce has orange and lime juice in it to lift up and lighten the dish, to cut through the sweetness of the plum sauce. Lo Hei everyone!
