STEP 1 Brush fish with soy sauce. Sprinkle with lemon-pepper seasoning (or pepper).
STEP 2 Preheat oven to 450°F. Place the fish in a greased 2-quart baking dish, tucking under any thin edges. Bake, uncovered, for 6 minutes. Arrange the orange slices on top of the fish. Bake until the fish flakes easily with a fork, 2 to 4 minutes more.
STEP 3 Meanwhile, combine broccoli, broth and garlic in a small saucepan. Bring just to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 2 minutes or until broccoli is crisp-tender. Stir in couscous. Remove from the heat. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes.
STEP 4 To serve, spoon the couscous mixture onto two serving plates. Arrange the orange-topped fish on top of the couscous mixture.
