Not only it is a mandatory menu, but it also has a lot of philosophical value. From the ingredients, dish arrangements, and how to eat the dish. Yee Shang has the value of hope for abundant fortune, good luck, and prosperity.

At a glance, Yee Shang looks like a normal salad with raw fish meat. The main ingredient to make Yee Shang is indeed the raw salmon meat. However, there are many variations for this dish, like the addition of shrimp or made with tuna meat. Nowadays, you can find a wide variety of Yee Shang.

This year, Yee Shang will also be available at Tang Palace Restaurant of JW Marriott Hotel Surabaya, with a wide choice of toppings, such as salmon meat, abalone, and Australian Wagyu Beef. Various meats will be the dominant ingredients because the next year is the year of the Metal Ox.

“We will have the options of salmon meat and sliced abalone for the upcoming Yee Shang tradition,” said the Executive Chef of Tang Palace, Chef Affat, Sunday (7/2/2021).

He will use organic vegetables and sesame dressing for this dish. There will be slices of carrot, cucumber, Pomelo, and radish. He will also make a variation using peanuts, dumplings, mushrooms, and onions.

To make the sauce and seasoning, he will use sesame oil, cinnamon, pepper, and ginger to make a full experience of the unique and tasteful Yee Shang. Do not forget the sprinkled lime on the fish and the addition of vegetables, sweets, and the unique sauce and seasoning.

Yee Shang usually served as an appetizer, followed by a series of Chinese New Year dishes to celebrate the upcoming year. Yee Shang is served uniquely with all of the movements and ingredients are complemented with meanings and prayers. Yee Shang must be served and eaten together with all of the family members.

When mixing the seasonings for Yee Shang, one must say “Gong Xi Fa Cai, Wan Shi Ru Yi”, which means “Congratulations for all your success, hopefully, all your wishes and dreams will come true”.

Next, you can add the fish meat and say “Nian Nian You Yu” as a wish for abundant fortune in the next year. You can sprinkle the lime on the salmon meat while also saying the prayers.

Add the sliced vegetables, peanuts, and dumplings. And then pour the seasonings and sesame oil in a circular shape.

After mixing the ingredients, it is time for all family members to stir the dish together using chopsticks.

Stir the dish together with your family members solemnly. Raise all Yee Shang ingredients high in the air. Hence, you need to stand up when stirring the dish. Say “Lo Hei” or “Stir” when stirring the dish.

It is believed that the higher you raise Yee Shang, the better your luck will be in the upcoming Chinese New Year. (*)
