Tired of the same ol same ol? Try this for some variety. Made this up, pretty happy with the results. Amounts are approximate as I rarely measure anything. Serves 4

Step 1- Make the marinade. In a food processor or small blender combine 2 oz capers, 1/2 minced onion, 1 oz nature's garden 'Italian herbs' (these are the squeeze tube herbs in the vegetable section of the market), 2 cloves garlic, juice of 1/2 a lemon. Add enough olive oil to barely cover the solids and then blend into emulsion. Pour over 4 grouper filets the size of your palm, about 1 inch thick. Refrigerate overnight in ziplock.

Step 2- Make the Orzo. Dice half an onion and sautee in olive oil until clear. Add in 2 tsp basil pesto, 6oz diced frozen artichoke hearts. Cook 3 minutes. Add in 1 quart chicken stock to deglaze pot and bring to a boil. Add in 8 oz orzo and boil for 5 minutes, covered. Remove from heat and keep covered. Add in cup of fresh grated parmesan and half cup sundried tomatoes, stir, keep covered.

Step 3- Cook the fish on medium high. Use a skillet without Teflon so bits of seasoning will stick to pan. Add fish and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, removing from heat when the middle 1/3 is still raw. Place in baking dish in oven at 350 for a few minutes to finish cooking while you make the sauce.

Step 4- Make the sauce. The sauce is the boss. Melt 1/2 stick butter in your fish skillet and turn heat to high. Once butter is melted, pour in juice of 1 lemon and 4oz wine. Scrape bits of seasoning off pan with spoon and cook until sauce starts to thicken.

Step 5- Plate up orzo, fish, pour on some sauce, and serve with your favorite ceaser salad. Delicioso!
