    evelyn/athens's Note:

    I made this today and was delighted with the great flavour and the ease of this recipe. But what I loved MOST was that my kids, notoriously fickle fish eaters, gobbled it down. Definitely a keeper. Adapted from a Bon Appetit recipe, April, 1991.

      Ohhhhh this is so good! DH is constantly begging for fried fish when we have fresh caught halibut and he is ALWAYS wanting oriental-type food, so this was perfect when he came home with a fresh batch of fish! The flavors of the sweet and sour sauce are spot-on and the batter for the fish is light and crispy. I did dredge the fish first in flour, then the batter and then panko breadcrumbs because DH likes fish extra crispy. I didn't get a good photo of the sauce, so all you see is fish...
