Cooking Instructions

Put 2 tablespoons (28 g) of the butter, the lemon juice, orange extract, and Splenda in a slow cooker.

Cover the slow cooker, set it to low, and let it heat while you fix your flounder rolls.

Put the almonds in a food processor with the S-blade in place and grind them to a cornmeal consistency.

Melt 1 tablespoon (14 g) of butter in a medium-size heavy skillet and add the ground almonds.

Stir the almonds over medium heat for 5 to 7 minutes or until they smell toasty.

Transfer them to a bowl.

Now melt the final tablespoon (14 g) of butter in the skillet and saute the onion and garlic over medium-low heat until the onion is just turning translucent.

Add them to the almonds and stir them in.

Now stir in the mustard, soy sauce, and 2 tablespoons (7.

6 g) of the parsley.

Lay the flounder fillets on a big plate and divide the almond mixture between them.

Spread it over the fillets and then roll each one up and fasten it with a toothpick.

Take the lid off the slow cooker and stir the sauce.

Place the flounder rolls in the sauce and spoon the sauce over them.

Re-cover the pot and let the rolls cook for 1 hour.

When they're done, spoon the sauce over the rolls and sprinkle the remaining parsley over them to serve.
