Arrange sole rolls, side-by-side in prepared glass or ceramic dish.

Sprinkle all over with pepper and paprika.

Cover dish with waxed paper or a lid.

Microwave for 6 minutes on ‘MAXIMUM’.

Leave to rest for 3 minutes.

Salt to taste.

In a small bowl, mix together remaining 2 tablespoons [30 g] butter and thinly sliced almonds.

Brown for 2 minutes on ‘MAXIMUM’; stir.

If needed, microwave almonds for 30 seconds more, stirring, until golden brown.

It is possible to microwave almonds for a third time, but it is necessary to stir almonds often as they can get too dark really fast [they should just be of a nice golden color].

Garnish hot fish with golden almonds; serve.
