3 lb Catfish fillets
3 c Oil
Cornstarch paste (cornstarch & water)
3 tb Oil
1 c Sugar
2 tb Cornstarch
4 tb Soy sauce
2 c Mild vinegar
1 lg Onion, minced

Dredge the fish well with the cornstarch paste.

Heat a large pan (for frying). Add 3 cups oil and heat until hot enough for frying.

Prepare sweet and sour sauce by mixing 3 tbsp oil, sugar, cornstarch, soy sauce, and vinegar. Add onions and ginger and simmer in a saucepan for a few minutes until it thickens up a bit.

Carefully lower the fish into the hot oil and fry until crisp and golden brown.

Arrange cooked fish on a platter and pour the sweet and sour sauce over it. Serve hot.
