Steam Cod Fish with Red Dates and Wolfberries

I try to make it a point to serve fish on a daily basis and since I bought 2 packets of frozen cod fish from our local supermarket, I have to think of different ways to cook them.

Steam Cod with Red Dates and Wolfberries
2 pcs Cod Fish Fillet/Steak (approx. 400g)
Some ginger, sliced
A handful of wolfberries, washed
8 - 12 pitted red dates, washed and cut into halves

1.5 tsp soya sauce
2 tbsp water
* mix together


  1. Steam red dates for 10 mins, set aside for further use.
  2. Rinse cod fillet/steak and place on plate.
  3. Mix all seasonings in a small bowl and spoon over cod fillet/steak.
  4. Arrange ginger, pre-steamed red dates and wolfberries on top of fish.
  5. Put into steamer and steam for about 10 - 15 minutes.
  6. Serve warm.

I like the dense texture of cod fish. This mild flavor cod is a good pairing to Chinese herbs. In my many lazy day, I just simple opt for Steamed Herbal Seabass (Ikan Siakap), simple yet nourishing.

I dun really dare to eat steamed cod but I like it pan fried. Having said that, I like the look of this version with red dates and wolfberries :)
