Auspicious foods are an important focus during the two-week Chinese New Year festival. A chicken might be served whole to symbolise family togetherness, and sticky rice cake might be offered up to ensure a rich, sweet year ahead. Whilst a whole fish served with the head and tail attached symbolises a good beginning and ending for the coming year – the Chinese word for fish also sounds like ‘abundance’. This particular recipe combines the salty, earthyiness of black bean, with a hit of chilli and a beautifully lightly steamed fish. Great for flavour, balance, and abundance. Kung Hei Fat Choi!
