From the Test Kitchen

In this classic American dish, we’re letting the season’s best ingredients shine. Meyer lemons—an incredibly aromatic variety notable for its subtle sweetness—bring their distinctively fruity flavor to the lemon-butter
sauce for our flaky cod. To finish the sauce, we’re stirring in chopped almonds, lending a pleasant crunch to each bite. On the side, tangy crème fraîche ties together a seasonal medley of carrots, broccoli and roasted potatoes.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 475°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the potatoes lengthwise; thinly slice crosswise. Peel the carrots and thinly slice on an angle. Cut the broccoli into small pieces. Peel and finely chop the garlic. Quarter and deseed the lemon. Roughly chop the almonds.

2 Roast the potatoes:

Place the potatoes on a sheet pan; drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Arrange in a single, even layer and roast 18 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven and set aside in a warm place.

Cook, stirring occasionally, 5 to 7 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add ½ cup of water and cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 6 minutes, or until the vegetables have softened and the water has cooked off. Transfer to a large bowl; season with salt and pepper to taste.
