    Tips:

    • Fresh orange juice and apple cider vinegar can replace the excess use of sugar in a traditional sweet and sour sauce recipe to bring out the subtle sweet and sour flavor
    • Traditional sweet and sour recipe will deep-fry the meat which adds lots of calories. Coating with oatmeal and pan-frying the meat can make it just as crispy
