Chop finely; squeeze out remaining liquid. Divide spinach into four equal parts.

Place in a gratin dish, with lemon rounds in between. Pour wine into dish. Sprinkle a quarter of the almond mixture on top of each roll; cover with parchment and then aluminum foil. Bake until fish is opaque and cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven; serve immediately.

It's a great idea however sole is generally a tasteless fish and even with all these ingredients it was hard to find it tasteful. Fun to make and it looks great! Maybe it needs some kind of creamy sauce to make it better. I still finished it though and my family enjoyed it.

Despite all the great ingredients that went in to this recipe, I didn't find the flavor combinations to be all that complementary to each other.
