  • 1 pound baby white potatoes, cut in half
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • salt and pepper
  • 8 ounces broccoletti, broccolini, broccoli rabe, or broccoli
  • 10 green onions, trimmed
  • 2 (6-8 ounce) cod fillets
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pistachios
  • lemon wedges for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Toss potatoes with 1 tablespoon olive oil and salt and pepper. Place on baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes.
  3. Toss broccoletti and green onions with remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and salt and pepper. When the potatoes have roasted for 20 minutes, remove pan from oven. Add the broccoletti and green onions to the same pan with the potatoes. Return to oven and roast 10 more minutes. Flip broccoletti and green onions over with tongs and roast another 5 – 10 minutes, until broccoletti stalks are crisp tender. (The total roasting time from when you started roasting the potatoes is 35 – 40 minutes.)
  4. During the last 10 minutes of roasting time, cook the cod. Season cod with salt and pepper on both sides. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add cod and cook for 3 – 5 minutes, depending how thick the fillet is. Carefully flip over with a spatula and cook for another 3 – 5 minutes, until fish flakes easily or reaches internal temperature of 145 degrees.
  5. To serve: Divide potatoes, green onions, and broccoletti between serving plates. Add 1 piece of cod to each plate. Drizzle any leftover melted butter from the pan over the cod fillets. Sprinkle chopped pistachio over each plate. Serve with lemon.
