Chinese New Year Recipes

Happy Chinese New Year (新年快乐)

It’s Chinese/Lunar New Year’s Eve in Asia now, so I wanted to wish everyone a very happy Chinese/Lunar New Year.

Gong Xi Fa Cai, 恭喜发财.

May the year of the rat brings you great health, happiness, prosperity ($$$), and of course, lots of scrumptious foods.

Looking for Chinese New Year’s recipes?

Happy Chinese New Year (新年快乐)

Check out my recommendations and recipes below…

  1. Stir-fried Lobster with Butter and Cheese (芝士牛油焗龙虾) – This is the kind of dish that one would order at restaurants during Chinese New Year. Make it at home this year!
  2. Braised Daikon/Turnip with Pork Ribs and Dried Oysters (白萝卜蚝干焖排骨) – perfect for family dinners, dried oysters are excellent for Chinese New Year festivities.
  3. Sichuan Wok-fried Chicken – Running out of chicken recipes? Try this spicy and numbing Sichuan dish.
  4. Imitation Shark’s Fin and Crab Meat Omelette – go eco-friendly this Chinese New Year without sacrifying taste, really!
  5. Steamed Scallops with Soy Sauce and Garlic Oil – try steaming something different this year, scallop is a wonderful choice.
  6. Minced Chicken and Pork Rolls (鸡卷)- A slightly different twist to the classic “lor bak” (卤肉) but equally delicious.
  7. Stir-fried Chive Buds – Introducing an uncommon vegetable dish that is sure to impress your family and guests.
  8. Shrimp Wontons (鲜虾云吞) – Who doesn’t like this Chinese classic? A certified crowd-pleaser.
  9. Red Bean Paste Pancakes (豆沙锅饼) – end the family dinner with a sweet note with this Chinese dessert pancakes.
  10. Longan Dessert/Longan Tong Sui (龙眼糖水) – Serve your guests a warm bowl of this soothing drink; great for Chinese New Year’s cakes, cookies, and candies.

Happy eating (and drinking) for the next 15 days! *wink*

  11. lucia says:

    ok allow me to be a little picky first. :)

    it’s LUNAR NEW YEAR period.
    or CHINESE NEW YEAR period. (of which it can also be ‘___ new year’)

    the lunar new year is not celebrated by the chinese only but by vietnamese, koreans, mongolians.

    and i find it strange people should say ‘happy chinese new year’ when just a ‘happy new year’ will do.

    gong xi fa cai to you!
