Lo Hei/Yee Sang - New Year Salad

Last Saturday,  I held my annual Lunar New Year Celebration at my house.  A prominent dish served on this occasion is a raw fish salad called Yee Sang.  NPR had found my past postings (read blog) on this unique Southeast Asian tradition and they inquired if I knew anyone holding such custom.  So, I invited the producer over, and here is the audio broadcast, along with a few photos.

Hope you can feel the joy and festive mood when “tossing” this salad high in the air for good fortune in the year.  Happy Year of the Monkey.
