I've developed this recipe to be used with my bamboo steamer. Use your favorite oriental sauce or try my favorite bottled sauce, Iron Chef's Orange- Ginger Sauce. Or try the sauce used in Recipe #376279 Since my steamer has two baskets, I cook the fish in the bottom basket, and veggies in the top. Serve over rice; makes for a great one pot dinner! Time indicated does not include marinading time! NOTE: Cooking Sherry or Gin can be substituted for the rice wine.
