"My husband is a real fish lover," reports Erna Farnham of Marengo, Illinois. "This buttery treatment is his favorite way to prepare sole, perch or halibut." It cooks quickly in the microwave, so it's perfect for a busy weekday.

- 1/4 cup slivered almonds
- 1 pound sole fillets
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon dill weed
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper

- In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice, dill, salt and pepper; drizzle over fish. Sprinkle with paprika. Cover and microwave on high for 4-5 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Yield: 4 servings.
