Combine the cornflour, curry powder and water. Mix to make a smooth slurry.
Place salmon in a bowl. Add half of the curry powder mixture and stir to coat.
Preheat a wok or frying pan over medium heat. Add half of the oil and, once hot but not smoking, add the salmon strips. Fry the salmon for a few minutes on each side till golden brown. Remove and place on a plate lined with kitchen paper to soak up excess oil. Drain the oil from the wok or pan and discard.
Heat remaining oil in the wok over medium high heat. Add the onion, ginger and garlic, and stir until fragrant. Add the salt, sugar, stock and the remaining curry powder mixture and mix well. Toss in the peppers and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the salmon strips and toss gently to coat with the sauce. Transfer to a dish and serve.
