Carp with Red Sauce

1 pound carp fillets, skinned and cut 3/8−inch thick
(cutting shortens "floating bones" so cooking can break them down)
Vegetable oil, heated in a deep fryer
Batter:
1 cup cold water
1 egg
1/4 c oil
1/4 cup flour
4 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 t salt
1/2 teaspoon MSG (optional)
Mix water, egg and oil before adding other ingredients. Dip strips
in batter, drop them into a deep fryer. Cook until done, drain on
paper toweling. Much like hors d’oeuvres. Dip into the following sauce.
Red Sauce:
1 cup catsup
1 cup chili sauce
dash of Tabasco
dash of Worcestershire
squeeze of lemon
3 Tablespoons pure ground horseradish
salt and pepper to taste
