Chinese New Year “Loh Hei” or Prosperity Toss
Did you know that “Loh Hei” is a Singapore Dish?
“Loh Hei” 捞起 in Cantonese means Prosperity Toss.
It is a Teochew-style raw fish salad, consisting of strips of raw fish, mixed with shredded vegetables and a variety of sauces and condiments, among other ingredients.
Another name for “Loh Hei” is Yúshēng (鱼生) which literally means “raw fish” but is interpreted as Yúshēng (余升) meaning an increase in abundance.
Hence, yusheng is considered a symbol of abundance, prosperity and vigor.
