      um, btw, " steam fish" can be pronounced in Putonghua (Mandarin), or in Taiwanese, or in Cantonese , or in Hakka (客家話)....etc....! not a big deal at all ! of course , you can say "Zheng Yu" with your Putonghua (Mandarin) ! and, someone can also say "Jing Yu" in Cantonese ...etc ! as a matter of fact : Chinese =/=Mainland Chinese

    Fun fact: calling the Chinese New Year “ lunar new year “ is not right. Chinese New Year is based on Chinese calendar, which is lunisolar one that’s why it’s new year always falls in Aquarius.
    What’s the real lunar calendar then ? The Arabic one.

    • Mi Ng

    熊团子 2 months ago +2

    Since so many people misunderstand the new year I will explain it. Lunar new year is a traditional Chinese New Year which is based on the moon. It meant a lot a lot to Chineses just like Christmas to christians. On the new year, no matter what everyone in your family will get together and celebrate it. But now, some other countries claims that it is their "own" new year which disgust a lot Chinese people. We are fine if they want to celebrate the festival too but they are disrespectful to Chinese cultures as they change the name of lunar new year to their new year.
    That's why now people are saying Chinese New Year, to remind everyone this is Chinese' culture. If Muslims take Christmas as their biggest holiday and claim that it is theirs. What will you think??( I am not offensive to any cultures and religions. This is just an example)
    Btw I love this video!
    Sorry for my bad English. If you have anything disagree with me, please leave a comment. Thank you !!

    • Simon Skyy
      Simon Skyy 2 months ago +1

      +熊团子 I think they are all different yet similar festivals based on a roughly the same date. So lunar new year is technically a broad term to group all these new year festivals together. So in my understanding lunar new year =Vietnamese new year, Korean new year and Chinese new year, combined and oversimplified

      Lạc Yên Trang I said we can celebrate the same festival. But some people is saying that the new year is belongs to them, and the new year is coming from their cultures

    • Lạc Yên Trang
      Lạc Yên Trang 2 months ago

      I respect you but you said that lunar new year isn't for Vietnamese and Korean so I think u are not respect us. We share it the same day. And my English is so bad too ❤❤❤

    • Lạc Yên Trang
      Lạc Yên Trang 2 months ago

      We are Disrespectful to Chinese cultures? Kidding? So u mean we must celebrate Chinese new year in Vietnam or Korea? We can not celebrate it because it's your own fest? New year lunar is your fest?

    Some corrections/tips for steamed fish:
    1. fish = 魚 doesn't sound like prosperity exactly. It sounds like 餘 which means leftover/extra/abundance. Hence ppl usually call any fish dish 年年有餘 (= having extra every year = prosperity) around new year.
    2. Fish needs to be FRESH. Fresh ingredients are always great but if you have a fresh fish you might not even need the ginger (mostly to remove fishy smell).
    3. If you have a transparent lid, traditional trick to see if the fish is cooked is the eyes. If it's cooked the eye will turn white and pop out (as in video). They say you should steam it in one go or the fish will be ruined so this helps w not opening the lid a million times to poke it.
    4. Traditionally the point of the dish is how soft the flesh is, so it's barely cooked where the middle of the fish would almost stick to the bones. But depends on your preference.
    5. Putting a pair of chopsticks under the fish (across it) helps it steam more evenly. I imagine it's especially important if you like it barely cooked like me lol If you have a fat fish you can give it a cut along the back and/or stomach too.
    6. If you're lazy there is soy sauce for steaming fish you can buy, but ofc it's more customizable if you make your own.
    7. There's flesh in the fish's cheek which is like the softest part of the fish! Ppl fight for that stuff :P
    Steamed fish is like my favourite dish so I just wanted to share what I know. ^^" Thank you Tasty for featuring some Chinese recipes. Happy lunar new year!

      +biohazard724 the exact wording is "魚 is also... sounds like prosperity in chinese". I took that to mean the Chinese word for prosperity sound similar to the Chinese word for fish, which I find not quite true so I wanted to point out an extra step in the middle in that correlation. If you think it's accurate, then that's great! No misinformation. I mean the creator no harm. Just wanted to give 2 cents to those who likes details.
