Use Non Stick Cookware to Begin a Great Year of the Monkey with a Lucky Fish Dish

The Year of the Monkey, according to the Chinese twelve-year animal zodiac, starts the 2016 cycle on the 8th Feb. The Chinese New Year is a highly celebrated festivity filled with traditions: firecrackers to sound out the old year, prayers for a smooth new year, and of course, eating lots of delicious ‘lucky’ food.

The Chinese are famous for their tasty cuisine, namely spring rolls, dumplings, niangao and fish, all New Year’s classics. Cooking a whole fish is important in Chinese tradition. The character symbol in the Chinese alphabet for fish, pronounced ‘yu’, means there will be a surplus of food in the New Year.
