1. Cut each plaice fillet in half lengthways and place on a board, skinned side up.
2. Lay half a slice of ham on each halved fillet and roll up from the tail towards the head end. Push a wooden cocktail stick through each end to secure it firmly.
3. Repeat the process for the remaining roulades.
4. Space the fish evenly around the edge of a shallow 20 cm (8 inch) microwave plate or dish. Sprinkle with wine and dot with butter. Cover each roulade with pierced young vine leaves.
5. Cover the dish with a lid or cling film and microwave on HIGH for 5 minutes.
6. To make the sauce, blend the egg yolk with the creme fraiche in a sauce jug or small bowl. Stir in the juices from the fish.
7. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH for 1 minute, stirring three times as the mixture thickens. Season to taste.
8. Remove the cocktail sticks and serve the fish with the sauce accompanied by baby potatoes and green beans.
