嘻哈大笑 Ketchup Prawn

I have a family gathering at my place on the 7th day of CNY, Hubby and I combined effort to prepare five dishes ourselves while three other dishes ( Fa Cai Yusheng, Teochew Braised Duck and Wu Xiang ) were store-bought.  We cooked ketchup prawns, stewed chicken, steamed fish, mixed vegetable and pig maw (pig stomach) soup for the 8-course dinner.

Prawn (shrimp) connote happiness. Cantonese pronounced prawn/shrimp as ‘ha’ which means laughter.  This is a must-have dish in Chinese families during Chinese New Year.  Even for me who does not need to cook on the first two days in CNY will buy and keep prawns in the freezer for that auspicious reason.
