Step 1

Thaw fish if frozen. Rinse fish steaks; pat dry. In a small bowl combine lemon juice, soy sauce, snipped thyme, and seasoning. Brush mixture over one side of steaks.

Lightly coat the unheated rack of a broiler pan with cooking spray. Place fish, brushed sides up on broiler pan. Broil 4 inches from the heat for 8 to 12 minutes or until fish begins to flake when tested with a fork, turning once and brushing with lemon juice mixture halfway through cooking.

Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan bring broccoli, carrot, chicken broth, water, and garlic just to boiling. Cook, covered, about 3 minutes or until broccoli is barely crisp-tender. Stir in couscous. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Serve fish atop hot cooked couscous mixture. If desired, garnish with thyme sprigs.
