This was extremely easy to make and really tasty. A great way to cook cod and not at all faffy!

Cheated lots on this one so didn't steam it, just layered everything into a wok. Used tinned sweet corn and ordinary mushrooms. Didn't have rice wine so put dry sherry instead, and served with large garlic and coriander naan bread.

Sounds nice, looks nice, but is a faff to make and disappointing to eat.
