I got this from the Food Network:Big Daddy's House:Catch of the Day with Aaron McCarty. This gets nice and creamy like risotto! I tweaked it just a little.

Brilliant! This is a wonderful side dish for grilled chicken, fish and would work well with picatta. I used fat free half and half and only 1/2 the lemon and pepper called for. It was delicious!
