- Place fillets in a small, shallow baking dish that will fit inside a large, deep skillet. In a small bowl, stir together soy sauce and wine. Pour over fish. Top with ginger and carrots; set aside.
- Fill skillet with about an inch of water. Bring to a simmer. Place a wire rack in the skillet.
- Place baking dish containing the fish on the wire rack, and cover. Steam for five to six minutes.
- Add snow peas and yellow pepper to the baking dish and again cover it. Steam until fish flakes when touched with a fork and vegetables are crisp-tender, about five minutes. Serve immediately.
