Stir briefly to dissolve the sugar.

Set aside for 20 min or so.
Heat the broiler to high, and move the oven rack to position closest to heat.
Slide the pan into the oven, and broil the fish for 5 minute Keep the oven door ajar so the broiler element stays lit.
Turn the pan around (back to front), and broil for 5 more minute.
If the juices in the pan appear to burn, add a little water to the dry spot to prevent burning.
The fish should be opaque and flaky.
Spoon the sauce over the fish when serving.
