Alright, I may be a bit late for Yu Sheng (Lo Hei) now as Chinese New Year is officially over, LOL, but I finally got hold of my mum’s recipe.  Shall post it here so that you can have Yu Sheng anytime of the year.

Actually, it is like a fruit salad too if you notice!

Ingredients of our Fruit Yu Sheng (Serves about 10-12 adults):

  • 1/4 honeydew
  • 1/4 rockmelon
  • 2 chinese pears
  • 8-10 strawberries
  • 1 mango
  • 1/4 pomelo (or 1 orange)

Ingredients for sauce marinade and garnishing:

  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons lemon sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • A pack of Chinese shrimp crackers (or 1 cup of plain cornflakes)
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, preferably toasted
  • 1/4 cup roasted peanuts, chopped finely


Step 1:  Peel and cut the fruits into thin strips about 3 inches long.  For pomelo (or orange), peel and divide them into smaller sacs.  Place each type of shredded fruit on a round shallow plate side by side to make a nice colorful platter.

Step 2:  Sprinkle the crackers, chopped peanuts and toasted sesame seeds on the fruits.

Step 3:  Mix lemon sauce, lemon juice and honey in a small bowl.  Taste.  If you like it sweeter, add more honey.

Step 4:  Drizzle this sauce marinade from Step 3 evenly over the platter.  This is how it should look (or close enough).

Before eating, just toss the ingredients evenly.

Basically this Yu Sheng recipe is made up of fruits, so you can add any type of fruits to the list, but I will advise choosing fruits that are not too soft yet sweet to make the dish taste better.

I hope you like it!
