Cornflake Crispy Cod with Parm-Butter-Brocc

Here is a VERY easy, VERY tasty dinner you can make in a hurry! Things have been crazy over here with spring in full swing and teething in full effect. Dude cut his first tooth on the 11, followed quickly by the second on the 16th...who knows when the next will start to make it's appearance!
Anyhow- with my crawling/cruising/wild-man teether- we try to spend as much time OUT of the house between am & pm naps as is humanly possible- so we headed down to the beach yesterday and had a beautiful time!
This leaves me very little time to throw dinner together before bedtime gets going- but with recipes like this, I'm ready for our busy active summer ahead!

This can easily be doubled or more to serve more people- this recipe as-is serves 2~
(based on THIS (click here) recipe from Real Simple)

2 cod fillets
2 handfuls corn flakes cereal
1 crown of broccoli (two or three handfuls chopped up)
1/4 cup butter 
Parmesan cheese
Olive oil
Lemon pepper

Preheat the oven to 400
Crush the cornflakes (I did it by hand, then put the bits in a shallow dish)
Line a baking sheet with foil, and place the cod fillets on the sheet.
Drizzle olive oil over the cod (the side that didn't have the skin removed, so the "top") & lightly salt each filet.
Coat with cornflake crust.
Cook about 15 minutes or until flaky & cooked through.
Meanwhile steam the chopped broccoli for about 5 minutes.
In a small sauce pot, over low heat, melt the butter, add a handful of Parmesan and stir- turn off heat and remove pot from the burner.
Put the steamed broccoli in a medium bowl and toss with the Parm-Butter add a little salt and lemon pepper (if you have it)- I didn't end up using all of the butter mix.
If you have extra you can drizzle a little of the butter mix over the cod too~
Garnish the broccoli with a little extra parm & enjoy!
