2 c ALL-PURPOSE FLOUR SIFT.
3/4 c BOILING WATER
2 tb SESAME OR COOKING OIL
SAUCE:
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 scal-
lions. 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.

Title: SZECHUAN-STYLE SLICED FISH B1
Categories: RED SNAPper, WOK, CHINESE, SEAFOOD, MAIN
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 IN. 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 corn-
starch, 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 sli-
vers, the scallion, into thin slices, and fine-
ly 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 soak-
ed in warm water for 20 minutes before using.
