There comes another celebration in few days time. Yes! Chinese New Year is on the way. 恭喜發財！Even we do not celebrate Chinese New Year officially, but we do symbolize it with reunion dinner, visiting relatives and friends during this period of celebration. It will definitely be another busy day for me on the CNY eve as we need to whip up some reunion dinner dishes for the family.
This year, I want to do something different and go mostly for baked dishes. This is one of the simple recipe I want to prepare and it is much healthier for a start of the new year. Baked fish with mango salad was adapt and modified from the Donna Hay magazine. Since, Chinese loves to have fish in their reunion dinner as the Chinese phrase "年年有余“ meaning wishing you prosperity every year. The last word of the phrase sounds the same as the fish "魚“ in Chinese. Thus, we usually will whip a fish dish for the dinner. Isn't it a good start for the year? If you want to know more about CNY phrases, you can find it here.
I love this recipe as the mango salad added a twist of taste for the baked fish. You can have a mixture of sweet, sour, salty and refreshing taste in this dish. The mint leaves bring out the refreshing aromatic taste combined with other salad ingredients. Simply exotic and different from other baked fish dishes. If you too fancy mango salad with fish, do give this recipe a try!
Last by not least, I would like to wish all of you who celebrating Chinese New Year " A Healthy, Prosperous & Joyful " Chinese New Year. Till then, sit back and enjoy your holidays!
