Sweet and Sour Fish

This is a typical "high heat stir-fry" dish.  The fish is first deep-fried to golden brown.  Stir-fry the vegetables over high heat to bring out the flavour, add mixed sauce to the hot sizzling wok (or pan), followed by tossing the fried fish chunks back into wok to mix well with the tomato sauce.
