A flakey, cod fish delight

Just butter your cast-iron skillet or baking dish, place the fish and broccoli florets, butter pieces, minced garlic, sprinkle of dill, and squeeze a bit of lemon on top. Voila! Well, almost….

Be sure to bake at 420ºF for about 15 minutes.

You’ll also want to check on that pesky broccoli about half way through and give it a good toss as to not burn it.

You can even remove it half-way through if you feel like it is beginning to overcook.
