  • Whisk egg white until stiff, and fold into batter just before using.

  • Reheat oil and refry each fish piece for 2 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  • Carefully remove all but 1 tbsp of oil from the wok.
  • Heat oil, add chili, ginger, garlic, chili powder, tomato paste, tomato chutney, soy sauce, sugar, wine and water, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Stir well over heat for 3 minutes. Increase heat and toss in fish pieces. Coat with sauce and, when heated through, serve immediately. #TIME# Preparation takes 40 minutes, cooking takes 30 minutes. #COOK’S TIP# Choose your favorite type of fish for this recipe.
