1/2 cup soy sauce

2 tbsp. sugar

2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice and zest of lemon

Remove fish from marinade. Put marinade in a small pot and boil for five minutes. Set aside this is your baste. Spray your cooking grate with cooking spray, place on grill and put the fish on it. Cover and cook until the fish flakes, basting with the marinade every two minutes or so.
