In the Asian culture, fish is seen as more than just a nutritious meal. It’s also looked at as a symbol of wish fulfillment, abundance, good fortune and prosperity. The list of fish most often served during the celebrations includes salmon, shrimp, clams, snails and assorted white fish. So you could essentially serve Alaskan cod, rockfish and halibut too.
One of our favorite dishes is hot and sour shrimp soup. It is made with Alaskan spot shrimp, spring onions, red chilies and ginger. Those ingredients are typically added to a savory broth made of chicken stock, rice wine vinegar, caster sugar and soy sauce. Contemplate serving it as an appetizer along with a plate of Alaskan crab spring rolls, dipping sauces and Alaskan seafood fried rice. We’d suggest using the spot shrimp, razor clams and King crab in the rice dish.
For a main course, try serving sesame seed crusted Alaskan salmon or a steamed Alaskan halibut with Chinese vegetables. Both Alaskan seafood dishes should make welcome additions to a reunion dinner table.
Have a Happy New Year!
