1 pound boneless and skinless butter fish or yellowtail
3 Tablespoons Jinhua or Smithfield ham, minced
1 Tablespoon chicken fat
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/2 scallion, minced
8 large celtuce leaves
1/2 egg, beaten
1 cup vegetable oil
Preparation:
1. Cut fish in finger-size pieces.
2. Mix ham and chicken fat with the sesame oil, salt, pepper, and minced scallion, and spread this on top of the pieces of fish that are wrapped in a leaf and sealed with a little egg.
3. Heat half the oil in a wok or fry pan and fry one-half of the wrapped pieces for four minutes, then drain them on paper towels and put them in a low oven to keep them warm. Repeat until all the wrapped fish are fried, then serve them.
