With the remaining butter heat the capers and parsley until you have a nice buttery sauce to pour over the fish.
For the salad, arrange the leaves on a plate.

Place the artichoke hearts amongst the leaves.

Add the orange segments and pine nuts.

Mix the dressing ingredients together and drizzle over the top.
