Quick Fried Crispy Fish at Grand Szechuan

I'm desperately trying to recreate this dish at home but I'm running into some roadblocks. Does anyone know the actual recipe or one similar to it? My Google-Fu came up dry.

I'm almost certain the fish is dredged in cornstarch before frying. But it has that slightly sweet flavor and it's not sticky like it has been tossed in a sauce after frying, so what are they putting in the cornstarch? I'm not sure sweet rice flour would be the right flavor.

It's not a traditional black bean sauce but the fermented black beans are present. It seems like there is the tiniest bit of some kind of sauce that the red bell peppers and beans are tossed in. Again, I'm stumped.

As much as we like going to GS, it's kind of far away from our little South Minneapolis bubble and a little on the pricey side to visit all that often. Any thoughts you may have on this would be appreciated!
