California Seafood Substitutes: Any of the mild-flavored California fish such as halibut, rockfish, sole or sanddab work well in this recipe.

1 pound California rockfish (Pacific snapper) fillets
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1/3 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon each, salt, pepper, dill weed
1 pear 3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup seedless grapes
2 tablespoons pistachio nuts, chopped
1/3 cup dry white, California Wine*

Peel, core and cut the pear into small pieces. Place cut pear into a small bowl and toss with lemon juice to prevent browning. Cut grapes in half and add to pears. Set aside with pistachio nuts.

Add the olive oil to the skillet and heat. Combine flour, salt, pepper and dill weed. Dust each fillet with the seasoned flour mixture and place in the hot oil. Cook until the fillets are golden brown on each side. Remove to a warm serving platter.

Add butter and pistachios to skillet and stir until lightly toasted. Add grapes, pears and wine to the skillet. Continue cooking until fruit is heated through and pan is delazed. Pour fruit mixture over fillets. Serve with fresh lemon and dill. * May substitute wine with pear or apple juice.
