Delicious & very easy to prepare. I left the fillets in the oven for around twenty minutes and they were perfect: cooked through as we like them to be, and very moist. I'm not overly keen on mustard and it is quite prevalent in this dish, but I found the sauce to be exceptionally moreish. The sauce & marinade ingredients, as listed, could easily accomodate four to six serves. Thank you for a great recipe!

  3. Mix 1/4 cup melted butter with brown sugar, soy sauce, lemon juice, wine and seasonings in a bowl.
  4. Pour over the fish; cover with foil, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
