Happy Chinese New Year!

February 20, 2015

This week we have welcomed in the Chinese New Year! Here at Vanilla in Allseasons we love any opportunity for a celebration & a chance to create a feast. If you don’t have any plans this weekend then why not create a wonderful Chinese dish in honour of seeing in the new year. Whether you’d prefer to have a quiet night in with friends, family & loved ones, or you’re going to throw a fabulous dinner party there are many flavourful dishes to choose from. If a dinner party is more your style then you could challenge yourself by creating several dishes with different meats, spices and textures to please all of your guests. A great addition to any dinner party is whole fish, this recipe below from Today.com gives you everything you need to serve this wonderful fish.

Whole Fish: Sweet chile sauce 1 two-inch knob of ginger 3 garlic cloves 1/2 cup rice vinegar 1/4 cup sugar 1/3 cup sambal oelek Chili paste Next, 'steam whole fish until just barely cooked through and then deep fry in a skillet filled with at least 3 cups of oil until the fish is crispy. Remove from oil and place on lettuce leaves and top with sweet chile sauce.'
