Featuring an assortment of vegetables, raw fish slices and ground spices, yusheng would be a wholesome dish, if not for these fat traps: Deep-fried pillow crackers and sugar-loaded plum sauce.
According to nutrient info from the Health Promotion Board, a 387g serving of store-bought yusheng will cost you 561 calories. That’s a whopping figure, considering that this dish is usually eaten as a starter.
The solution: Make your own yusheng. You’ll be in control of what ingredients to add, and how much. Executive chef Eric Chan of Xin Cuisine Chinese Restaurant shares some ways to cut the fat and up the nutrients.
