Simple Chinese Steamed Fish Recipe for the VitaClay steamer cooker

Fish, or "yu" ,the saying that goes with the Chinese New Year fish dish is “nian nian you yu,” which means “may the year bring prosperity.” The character for prosperity, yu, is a homophone for the word for fish, yu. Families buy a whole fish, which symbolizes unity, and typically steam it with ginger and a light soy sauce. It's also important to leave leftovers for the next day, because this signifies that the prosperity will overflow. Try this steamed rock cod which you can make easily with VitaClay as it functions as a crock pot steamer!
