Steamed Snapper with Ginger and Scallion

Did I mention how much I love my instant pot? Yesterday, I have the craving for steamed fish, and went to the market to get a snapper.  After I cleaned and patted it dry, I marinated with salt and pepper, and added a few slices of ginger and scallion to the belly.  Then add a little bit of wine to get rid of the fishy smell along with a little bit of seseme oil.  Then I put in the microwave for 10 min, then pour away the water that came out from it. 

-1 snapper
-salt & pepper
-cilantro and some scallion (for garnish)
-shallot & garlic

-soy sauce
-chicken broth or water
-seseme oil

To make the sauce:
-Wok/Pan/ add oil and minced garlic/shallot (took some out and put aside .  You can put some to garnish the fish later.
-Add ginger

Note: the sauce should be sweet and not so salty.
