  3. Add garlic and heat for 1 minute.
  4. Add honey, worcestershire and mustard, cook for an additional minute.
  5. Add lemon juice and allow to cool in refrigerator for 10 minutes, or until mixture is thick.
  6. Chop scallions and basil.
  7. Cut fish into 2oz portions.
  8. Pinch a piece of foil so that it has four raised edges to trap the sauce.
  9. Arrange fish on oiled/greased aluminum foil.
  10. Spread all of sauce mixture over top of each portion.
  11. Top sparingly with basil and scalions.
  12. Sprinkle salt and pepper.
  13. Roast in oven for 10-15 minutes, depending on thickness of fish (15 minutes per inch thickness for fully cooked), or until desired. If using Ahi, I prefer to cook for 10 minites to allow inside to remain raw.

Tremendous recipe!!! Made this with Mahi Mahi - followed directions to the "T". Seared it on the grill and finished it in the oven while the rest of the meal was finishing. I will definitely use this recipe over and over again!!! I think this might taste great with cilantro! I'll try that the next time.

This was okay, but next time I will change it some. This time I followed the recipe exactly, but found the lemon to be overpowering and the whole dish too tart for my taste. Next time I might double the honey or halve the lemon juice. Otheriwse, I liked the combination of flavors, the balance just wasn't right for me. Made with mahi mahi.

I just joined Weight Watchers and I was looking for a healthy and easy recipe. I bought some Mahi Mahi and found this recipe. I made it tonight and it was delicious! All of the ingredients work well together and it was very easy to follow!
