Lucky Savoury Dishes
In countries like Spain, Portugal, Austria, Hungary and Cuba this is considered to be lucky to make sure you have some pork dish served on your dining table this time of the year. Pig symbolizes progress since it does not move backwards only forwards, this means that would be the same case with your fortune as well. Best dishes to serve this time will be a whole roast pig but if you don’t have that much family members to feed roast pork can do the job.
Green Leafy Vegetables
Green is widely associated with cash in many countries from America and even in Europe hence a lot of the cultures in this region enjoy eating green leafy vegetables like kale, cabbage and or collard greens. It is believed that the more you eat greens the more money you will have so at this instance it good to commit gluttony, anyways even you don’t get lucky with money you will get lucky with health just imagine the health benefits you can get with these. Good recipes that we can associate with this are the following: Sauteed Kale, Bok Choy in Oyster Sauce and/or Kailan in Oyster Sauce.
Whole fish (Including the Head and Tail)
This is a Chinese custom and like the 888 plate numbers it has the same reason why fish is considered lucky, the Chinese word “fish” sounds like the Chinese word for “abundance”. Take note you cannot use any fillets as this will break your luck, leaving the whole fish intact ensures you have a good year from the beginning of the year till the end. How about fish balls? Its fish and its round, so do I get double the luck?
So what delicious dishes can I serve using the whole fish? Well you can make any of these Pinaputok na isda, Crispy Fried Fish in Garlic Ginger Sauce, Malaysian Style Steamed Fish, Garlic Butter Baked Salmon and/or Escabeche.
