Yield: 4 servings

Nonstick cooking spray

4 1-inch-thick salmon fillets (about 1 pound)

1/2 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning or 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 to 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

1 medium orange, halved and very thinly sliced

2 cups small broccoli florets

1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

3/4 cup water

1 teaspoon bottled minced roasted garlic or minced garlic

1 cup couscous

Lightly coat a shallow baking pan with cooking spray; set aside.

Season salmon fillets with lemon-pepper seasoning. Arrange fillets in prepared pan. Drizzle with the soy sauce. Top with orange slices. Bake, covered, in a 450 degree F oven for 8 to 12 minutes or until fish just flakes easily when tested with a fork.

Meanwhile, in a 2-quart saucepan bring broccoli, chicken broth, water, and garlic just to boiling. Cook, covered, about 3 minutes or until broccoli is barely crisp-tender. Stir in couscous. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 5 minutes. Serve fish over hot cooked couscous and broccoli.
