Wine Pairings by @grapefriend

Explore Fiano for this mild dish – its hazelnut, yellow apple notes will be a lovely match.

Beer Pairings

With slight bitter notes, a hop-forward American IPA will balance the sweetness of the butternut squash.

2. Roast vegetables: Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat with nonstick cooking spray. Toss together butternut squash, broccoli, 1 tablespoon olive oil and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper on prepared baking sheet. Bake 20 minutes, or until browned and tender, stirring once, adding ONLY 1 tablespoon thyme leaves during last 2 minutes of roasting.

3. Cook Cod: Sprinkle cod with ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add cod and cook 2 minutes on each side. Add a few thyme sprigs to oil in the pan and baste cod with seasoned oil until fish flakes with a fork.

4. Finish Vegetables: Sprinkle roasted vegetables with goat cheese and let stand for a few minutes to allow goat cheese to melt slightly.

To Serve: Divide vegetables and cod between serving plates.

Pro Tip:

Tilt the skillet to easily spoon up seasoned oil to baste the fish.

Spice it Up!: Add some toasted pecans to the roasted vegetables for some crunch.
