  1. Combine the butter and paprika and set aside. Heat a large frying pan until very hot and add the olive oil. Season the fish well with salt and add the fillets to the pan, skin side down, pressing firmly with a fish press or the back of a spatula for a minute or so to stop the fillet curling. 
  2. Cook for about 2 minutes, then flip and add the paprika butter to the pan, basting the fish with it as it melts. Cook for a further 2 minutes until the fish is just cooked and the butter foamy. Remove from the pan and serve immediately with wedges of lemon.
