3 – Cut the florets and some stem from the broccoli stalk.  Break apart the remaining pieces.  Place in a covered baking dish.  Season with salt, pepper, olive oil, and sesame seeds.  Microwave for 4 minutes on high.

4 – Place one-quarter cup of soy sauce in a small, microwaveable bowl.  Add one-quarter cup of both lemon juice and white wine.  Season with 1 tablespoon of sugar.  Stir well.  When broccoli has finished cooking, microwave the soy sauce on high for 1 minute.  Then pour over the broccoli.  Keep covered to preserve warmth.

5 – Microwave the cod for 6 and one-half minutes, longer if it does not yet break apart easily.

6 – Serve the cod on top of the pasta, with the broccoli with soy sauce on the side.
