Recipe: Roasted Broccolette and Cod with Orange Chili Hoisin Sauce

Please share if you love it!

Do you remember the broccolette I bought at Costco a few weeks ago to serve with this chicken in a lemony thyme sauce?

Chicken and Broccoli

We liked that broccoli so much, we decided to dish it up with meaty chunks of cod, and lacking the energy for a multiple pan meal determined a roast in the oven was the way to go.

If I was going to be a lazy cook, the least I could do was whip up a spicy glaze that could do double-duty on the cod and the broccoli.

Hoisin is always in my frig, along with a jar of chili-garlic sauce. All I needed was a fresh note for my glaze – the oranges on the counter were perfect.

A sprinkle with black sesame seeds and a few lemon wedges and my lazy cook’s meal was ready to go. Some days are just like that. It’s a good thing I keep a supply of pantry items on hand. They never let me down.

Enjoy your week!
