Bountiful Goldfish Salad (????)

by: Blackswan






I'm a great fan of food art & this was my 1st attempt creating this Bountiful Goldfish Salad. Nian Nian You Yu (????) symbolizes abundance though the year. The character ? (Yu) is the homophone of ? (Yu). Hence, fish was used to highlight this Chinese New Year dish. I wanted to use Strawberries for the tail & fins, & Mango for salad but had to do a 180 deg change at the eleventh hour when I couldn’t find any of these 2 ingredients in the supermart.

I’d fun decorating the fish, seeking opinion from my hubby on & off, on the manner the fish looks etc. I was ready to present this salad for our special dinner once he gave the final approval :)
