1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup quick-cooking couscous

1. rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. sprinkle with lemon pepper
2. place fish in a greased nonstick baking pan and drizzle with soy sauce. arrange the orange slices on top of the fish. bake, covered, in a 450 degree oven for 8-12 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
3. meanwhile, in a medium saucepan combine the broccoli, broth, water, garlic and salt. bring just to boiling; reduce heat. simmer, covered, about 3 minutes or just until broccoli is crisp-tender. stir in couscous. remove saucepan from heat. cover and let stand for five minutes. fluff gently with a fork.
4. to serve, spoon the couscous mixture onto a serving platter and arrange the orange-topped fish on top of the couscous mixture.

Yay for Malia posting a recipe! I know you're a good cook, I just know it! Unfortunately I am so anti seafood. I can't stand the taste or smell. So Jim gets his fix at McGraths or some place like that. I'm sure it's great though ;)
