Note: This is one of the favorite recipes of the Giobbi family, chefs Eugenia Giobbi Bone, daughter; and Edward Giobbi. The original recipe is baked in the oven, and does not have a clam and lemon juice sauce. Any white fish can be substituted.
–cod (size of 4 decks of cards, 1 pound)
–broccoli (1 and one-half heads, fresh, florets and stems only)
–black olives (1 small can, drained, sliced
–minced garlic (1 tablespoon, bottled)
–clam juice (one-quarter cup)
–lemon juice (3 squirts, bottled)
–salt and pepper
–cayenne pepper (one-quarter teaspoon, bottled)
1 – Place the cod in a large, covered baking dish. Drench in lemon juice. Add the clam juice. Place broccoli florets and stems around the cod. Season the whole dish with salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, minced garlic, and olive oil.
2 – Microwave on high for 8 minutes. Cod is done when it begins to break apart.
3 – Serve the cod and broccoli hot.
