Sprinkle fish with flour to coat. Using a wire basket or long-handled Chinese strainer, lower in fish and deep-fry 3 minutes. Lift out and drain. 6. Repeat twice more (reheat oil each time) until fish is crisp and golden. Drain on paper toweling. Keep warm. 7. Heat remaining oil. Add ham and vegetables and stir-fry 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from pan. 8. Add stock, sugar, vinegar and soy sauce to the same pan and bring to a boil. Meanwhile blend cornstarch and cold water to a paste; then stir in to thicken. 9. Return ham and vegetables to sauce only to heat through. Pour mixture over fish and serve. From <The Thousand Recipe Chinese Cookbook>, ISBN 0-517-65870-4.
