1/2 c Hoisin sauce
1 tb Sesame oil
1 tb Sugar
1 ts Sherry

-----------------------------SCALLION BRUSHES:-----------------------------
1 bn Scallions
Ice water

Using wet, hot towels, moisten the bean curd skin sheets and set aside
until ready to use. Cover with hot towels to retain the moisture. In
separate small bowls, cover the dried shrimp and mushrooms with a little
boiling water. When soft, drain and mince finely with a knife or cleaver.
Mince the ginger. Finely chop scallions. In 1 tablespoon oil, stir-fry the
minced shrimp, mushrooms and bamboo shoot, adding 1 tablespoon of the soy
sauce, the sherry, sugar, flavor enhancer and black pep- per to taste.
After a minute, when most of the liquid has evaporated, stir in the
scallions and remove the filling to a container to cool.

In a large, flat, rectangular pan, combine chicken stock and remaining soy
sauce. Dip a softened bean curd sheet into stock mixture and lay out flat
on a work surface. Sprinkle lightly with filling.

Repeat dipping process with a second bean curd sheet, laying it on top of
the first and sprinkling it with a little filling. Cover with a third
sheet which has been dipped in the stock but do not sprinkle with filling.
Make sure all the corners of the bean curd skin package are thoroughly
moistened and gently fold into a 7x5-inch shape. Set aside. Make a batter
by combining the eggs with a little water and beating. Stirring
vigorously, pour the egg mixture into the flour. The resulting batter
should have the consistency of heavy cream. Add more water if necessary.
Heat oil for deep-frying in a wok to 300 F. Moisten the whole pie with the
egg batter and gently slip into the hot oil. Increase the heat and cook,
turning occasionally and gently, until the pie is golden brown on both
sides.

The pie may form pockets of air in the center and puff up. If this happens
while you are cooking it, prick them with the point of a sharp pin. Drain
well and cut in 8 to 10 rect- angular pieces. Serve wrapped in a PANCAKE
with SAUCE and a SCALLION BRUSH and garnish with parsley and decorative
radishes.

PANCAKES: Pour the boiling water into the flour and mix well with
chopsticks. Gather the dough into a ball and on a well-floured surface,
knead about 10 minutes until dough is smooth and satiny. Set aside, cover
with a damp cloth and let rest about 15 minutes. After resting, roll dough
into a cylandrical shape about 1-1/2 inches in diameter. Cut crosswise
into 12 rounds. Lightly brush some oil on one side of each piece.

Place two pieces together with the oiled sides together, resembling a
little sandwich. Roll each sandwich into a 6 to 7-inch circle. Cook the
dough circles one at a time on an ungreased skillet over low heat 1
minute, then turn over. When very lightly browned, remove from heat and
carefully separate into individual pancakes. Serve immediately or reheat
by heating them over a small quantity of water.

SAUCE: Combine all ingredients and serve as a sauce for the vegetable pie
or for Peking Duck.

SCALLION BRUSHES: Trim off root ends of scallions. Cut 2-3-inch pieces off
lower white end. Using the point of a small, thin, sharp knife, score the
white ends in 1-inch cuts, cutting away from the greens. Evenly space 5-8
cuts a- round the circumference of each stalk, so that the ends may open
out. When cut, drop in ice water until the ends curl.

Trim the chicken breasts of any fat and sinew. Season each piece with salt
and pepper. Prepare the batter. Combine the flours and baking powder in a
bowl. Beat the egg with the water, and quickly beat these liquid
ingredients into the dry ones. In a double boiler, combine the marmalade
and lemonade concentrate to make a sauce. Mix until smooth. Heat. Heat the
oil to 375 F in a shallow frying pan. Dip chicken breasts in the batter
and place them in the oil. Reduce the heat to 325 F and fry the breasts,
turning frequently, for 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown. Pour the
heated sauce over the chicken breasts and serve at once.

Title: SZECHUAN-STYLE SLICED FISH B1
Categories: Fish, Wok, Chinese, Seafood, Main dish
Yield: 6 servings

1 lb Fresh red snapper
-OR- grouper
1 ts Cornstarch
1 Egg white
1 ts Peanut oil
1 oz Tree ears
1 lg Red bell pepper
2 oz Snow peas
2 oz Water chestnuts
1 Inch peeled ginger root
1 Scallion
1 ts Minced garlic
2 tb Soy sauce
1/2 c Chicken broth
1/2 tb Sugar
1/2 tb Vinegar
1 tb Cornstarch
1 tb Sherry
2 c Peanut oil; for frying

Slice the fish into pieces 1/3 in. thick and 2 in. square. Combine the
fish with the cornstarch, egg white, and 1 tsp. peanut oil, and let stand
for 20 minutes. Cover the tree ears with warm water and let stand for 20
minutes. Core and seed the red pepper and cut it into 1 in. squares. Snap
the snow peas. Rinse the water chestnuts. Cut the ginger into thin
slivers, the scallion, into thin slices, and finely chop the garlic.
Combine the ingredients for the sauce. Heat the oil in a wok or frying pan
~- it should be very hot before adding the fish. Add the fish, piece by
piece, and cook for 1 minute. Transfer the fish with a slotted spoon to a
strainer over a bowl to catch the oil. Discard all but 1/4 cup oil from
wok and heat it again. Add the ginger, scallion, and garlic, and stir-fry
over high heat for 10 seconds. Add the pepper, water chestnuts, and pea
pods, and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the tree ear and fish. Thoroughly mix
the sauce and add it to the wok. Cook the fish, stirring gently, for 1
minute, or until the sauce thickens.

This recipe calls for a slippery black fungus called tree ears in North
America, cloud ears in China, and jelly mushrooms in Thailand. Tree ears
have very little flavor and are chiefly prized for their slippery, crisp
consistency. Available dried at Oriental markets, tree ears will keep
indefinately. They need only be soaked in warm water for 20 minutes
before using.
