SWEET AND SOUR SAUCE
Rinse fish with cold water; pat dry with paper towels. Cut fish into 1-inch cubes; transfer to shallow glass baking dish or bowl. Combine wine, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, garlic and ½ teaspoon monosodium glutamate; mix well. Pour mixture over fish; marinate ½ hour. Prepare Sweet and Sour Sauce while fish is marinating. Mix together egg and cornstarch to form stiff batter. Drain fish well; combine with batter. Carefully drop battered fish, one at a time, into heated oil in deep fryer or saucepan. Fry, over medium heat, until crisp and golden brown (approximately 6-8 minutes). Drain on paper towels; keep warm. In wok, or large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil. Add remaining ingredients and stir fry to 2-4 minutes, or until vegetables are tender but not limp. Add Sweet and Sour Sauce and blend. Add fish, combine well and serve immediately. Serve with steamed rice. Makes 4 servings.
