Since the Lunar New Year is also known as the Chinese Spring Festival, I decided to make a Yu Sheng with the Spring ( 春 ) character, representing the joyous season.

Ingredients

Number of serving: 6
80 g Shredded Carrots

150 g White Radish

150 g Jellyfish

20 g Green Pickled Nutmeg

20 g Red Pickled Ginger

20 g Preserved Sweet Onions

10 g Pok Chui Biscuits

10 g Keropok / Prawn Crackers ( optional )

5 tbsp Roasted Sesame Seeds

5 tbsp Chopped Peanuts

Pinch of Grounded Black Pepper ( put inside red packet )

4 tbsp Sesame Oil

3 tablespoon Lime Juice

2 tbsp Plum Sauce

Preparation

  • Step 1 - Chinese Spring Festival Jellyfish Yu Sheng
    Arrange carrots to form the " Spring " ( 春 ) character on a serving plate.
  • Step 2 - Chinese Spring Festival Jellyfish Yu Sheng
    Once you are happy with your character, place radish neatly as the base. Alternatively, you may also start off by putting the radish first as the base, then arrange the carrots on top to form the character if you find it easier.
  • Step 3 - Chinese Spring Festival Jellyfish Yu Sheng
    Next, sprinkle peanuts and sesame seeds around the radish. I am using each of the ingredient to form half the semi-circle.
  • Step 4 - Chinese Spring Festival Jellyfish Yu Sheng
    Now you can start to place the pickles and jellyfish on one side of the circle.
  • Step 5 - Chinese Spring Festival Jellyfish Yu Sheng
    Arrange the crackers to finish off the Yu Sheng. Well, I had some coloourful prawns crackers so I added them too.
