       Title: Kraphong Khao Priao Wan (Sweet and Sour Fish )
  Categories: Thai, Seafood
       Yield: 1 servings
 
  This is prepared from steaks of kraphong khao (sea bass), but you could
  easily use another fish (it works very well with shark steaks).
 
       4 half inch thick fish steaks.
 
       Marinade:
 
       2 Tbs rice wine
       2 Tbs light soy sauce
       2 Tbs wheat flour
       2 Tbs rice flour
 
  Dredge the fish in the marinade and leave to stand for about an hour so that
  the fish is infused with the flavour.
 
  Heat oil for deep frying in a deep skillet or large wok over medium
  heat, and when it is hot, add the fish, turning once, until cooked
  through. Remove the fish, drain the excess oil, and place on the serving
  platter. You can cook the fish in a electric deep frier if you wish (high
 heat is
  not required). Serve with sauce (below).
 
       Sauce
 
       1 onion, chopped,
       1 sweet pepper, chopped
       1/3 cup sugar
       2/3 cup tomato catsup
       1/4 cup rice vinegar (or other white vinegar)
       4 Tbs rice wine
       1/2 cup fish stock (or water)
       1/2 cup pineapple pieces
 
  The sweet pepper (prik wan) is a Thai equivalent of the bell pepper but
  is slightly less bitter. If you can't get rice wine, use a drinkable dry
 sherry.
 
  In a small pan saute the onion and sweet pepper, add the remaining
  ingredients, except the pineapple, and simmer until slightly reduced.
  Add about a tablespoon of cornstarch or rice flour to thicken the sauce,
  then add the pineapple and heat through.
 
  Pour over the fish, and serve with steamed jasmine rice.
