    I don’t have a steamer though so this is how I cook it. I put about 1 tbs grated ginger and 2 chopped cloves garlic in large pan, warm in 1 cup warm chicken broth for about 1-2 minutes. When comes to boil, add about 2tbs soy sauce, add codfish cover with sliced mushrooms diagonally, chopped spring onions, spoon broth over fish, cover, cook about 5 min. Super simple and fast!
