Method

 
Cut pork fillets into 1 cm thick slices then cut each slice into 4 strips. MARINADE: Stir cornflour, lemon juice, sherry, ginger, soy sauce and seasoning together in a bowl, then stir in egg white. Stir in pork strips and leave to marinate for 30 minutes. Tip pork into a colander and shake to drain off some of the marinade, then lay strips out on a board or tray. Sprinkle with half the sesame seeds, turn over and sprinkle with remainder. Fry in a deep fryer or 5 cm deep hot oil in a frying pan (do not overcrowd pan) for 4 to 5 minutes, or until golden. Drain on paper towels.) SAUCE: Stir all ingredients, except sesame oil, together in a small saucepan over moderate heat until mixture boils and clears. Remove from stove and stir in sesame oil (which loses its delicate taste if overheated).) Serve pork on a bed of shredded lettuce or Chinese cabbage, garnished with lemon and cucumber slices and cherry tomatoes. Pour sauce over just before serving. Equally tasty hot or cool.
