5 julienned strips green-bell pepper
½ cup julienned carrots

Prepare fried red snapper on a serving dish. Saute garlic, onion, and ginger until light brown. Add the vegetables and sauté for another 30 seconds. Add the chicken stock, house-blend sauce, and let it boil. Add sugar and vinegar. Let it simmer for a minute or two. Then, add cornstarch to thicken the sauce. Pour this sauce on the fried snapper and serve while hot.
