Redfish on the Half Shell

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by bayousong

Do not scale the fish. The scales become the baking, (grilling?) dish. The amount of basting sauce is enough for a whole fish. Prep time includes marinating time. BTW, it is spelled redfish, but Zaar did not recognize it that way. Also, I had to guess at the size.
