Steamed Cod with Chinese Wine and Wolfberries

I've cooked this dish several times and posted the picture more than once on my social media platforms. What I've not done is to provide the recipe to my friends and followers until a friend asked for it repeatedly. Sorry peeps, it's been a crazy period at work (well I also went on a long holiday which explains the lack of time). 

Anyway, this simple recipe came about when I wanted a super easy steamed fish for dinner one evening. Here are the conditions for the recipe I set: 
1) It must be easily prepared and cooked within 10 minutes. 
2) All the accompanying ingredients must be readily available at home, at all times. 
3) It must be delicious enough for my husband to want to finish a bowl of rice (a wife's greatest joy if you ask me).  

Needless to say, it was all well accomplished. I made this again last evening and I am glad to report that the hub finished every single grain of rice that I've cooked. :) 

1 piece - Cod steak 
3 slices - Old ginger, julienned 
1 tablespoon - Light soy sauce 
1 tablespoon - Chinese wine 
1 tablespoon - Wolfberries, rinsed  
1 teaspoon - Sesame oil 

Place the cod fish on a steaming plate. Drizzle over a teaspoon of sesame oil, and one tablespoon of light soy sauce and Chinese wine. Top with julienned ginger and wolfberries. Steam over high heat for about 7 minutes or when the fish is fully cooked.  Serve hot and enjoy.
