2/3 cup water
1 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup salad oil
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 teaspoons soy sauce

Blot halibut fillets with damp cloth and cut into 1-inch cubes. Prepare batter of flour, baking powder, salt, and water. Lay fish and batter aside and prepare the following sauce.
Sauce: In a small jar, shake the cornstarch and vinegar together until smooth. In a saucepan, combine the other ingredients and add the cornstarch mixture. Cook, stirring, until mixture comes to a boil. Keep warm over a double boiler.
To cook fish: Heat fat in deep-fryer or saucepan to 375 degrees. Coat halibut with batter, and fry until golden, turning once. Drain well on absorbent paper and keep warm.
Serve the sauce over the fish accompanied by rice. The curried fruit dish below is a gourmet accompaniment. Stir fried vegetables could also be served.
Curried fruit: Arrange your choice of fruit in a 2-quart baking dish. Sprinkle with butter, brown sugar and curry powder. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
