Yee Sang or Prosperity Toss, also known as Lo Hei in Cantonese is a tradition during Chinese New Year season. A Chinese New Year meal is never complete without the tossing of Yee Sang, a tradition bringing abundance, prosperity and vigour for the New Year. Yee Sang is often served as part of a multi-dish dinner, usually it is the appetiser due to its symbolism of good luck for the new year. Some would consume Yee Sang only on the seventh day of the Chinese New Year, although in practice it may be eaten on any day during Chinese New Year season. It is believed that the height of the toss reflects the height of the diner’s growth in fortunes, thus diners are expected to toss enthusiastically. All diners at the table stand and proceed to toss the shredded ingredients into the air with chopsticks while saying various auspicious wishes out loud.
The Yee Sang at Di Wei is light and refreshing, served with strips of salmon and green apple sauce that is sweet but not overpowering, blending delicately with the rest of the ingredients. The base ingredients such as shredded vegetables are first placed on the plate followed by ingredients such as the fish, the crackers and the sauces while saying auspicious wishes as each ingredient is added, typically related to the specific ingredient being added. For example, phrases such as Nian Nian You Yu are uttered as the fish is added, as the word Yu, which means abundance, sounds the same as the Chinese word for fish.
