I substituted pointy cabbage for the pak choi, Gewurztraminer wine for the rice wine, and lemon sole for the fish,( as I had them available,) excellent combination

A nice, healthy midweek meal. It didn't blow me away but it was enjoyable and I would cook it again sometime.

Can this be frozen when cooked ?

This doesn't freeze well once cooked, the texture will be affected once defrosted so for best results make fresh.
