Preheat the oven to 200 °C.
Make a few incisions on both sides of the fish and stuff with the basil leaves.
Loosely wrap the fish in a double layer of aluminium foil and seal the sides by folding the foil over.
Leave enough room for air to circulate during baking.
Place the fish on a baking sheet and bake for 30 to 50 minutes, depending on the size of the fish.
SAUCE
Place all the sauce ingredients in a saucepan and bring to the boil.
Remove from the heat immediately and season with salt and pepper.
Place the fish on a serving platter and pour the hot sauce over while the fish is still warm.
Serve with steamed jasmin or basmati rice.
