  6. Chop scallions and basil.
  7. Cut fish into 2oz portions.

  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.
