   1. Clean and scale the fish, leaving on the head and
   tail. Pat dry. Lightly season the inside and outside
   of fish with salt and make three slashes 1/4-inch deeo
   on each side for better cooking.
   
   2. Brush the fish with the beaten egg then roll in the
   flour. Pour 3 inches of oil into a roasting pan and
   heat to 375F. Test the temperature by droppinbg in
   cube of bread. If it raises to the surface immediately
   and browns, the oil is ready.

   splattering; slide in the rest of the fish. Deep-fry 3
   to 5 minutes on each side. Remove and drain on papper
   towels. Lay the fish on a serving platter and cover
   with the sweet and Sour Sauce. Serve immediately.
