Steamed Fish With Ginger 【姜蓉蒸鱼】

Whole fish needs to be served in Chinese New Year reunion dinner as the Chinese word for fish "鱼“  has the same pronunciation and intonation is the same as 余 (yu) which carries the meaning of plenty or abundance in Chinese.

Thus serving whole fish is the Chinese way of wishing for prosperity and wealth abundant in the year to come!
