For Sauce:

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

2 tablespoons finely chopped scallion tops

1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

For marinade: Combine all ingredients in a large, resealable plastic bag or glass baking dish. Add fish and seal bag or cover dish. Turn several times for marinade to coat fish completely. Let sit at room temperature for 1 hour, turning occasionally.
