Wild salmon fillets (by the way, ask your fishmonger to fillet the fish you buy). Grilled, baked, broiled, en papillote, whatever. Pull out the pin bones, if any, with a pair of pliers (plain old toolbox pliers will be fine). Spray them with cooking oil spray or gently rub some olive oil on them or brush them with melted BUTTER, sprinkle with some coarse or kosher salt, and cook as you will.

The only way to fix catfish or carp is to bread it with corn meal and fry it, although cat can be soaked all day in cheap beer. The soaking takes the "catfish-flavored-oil" out and you end up with a nice, mild, whitefish.

I only go to Alaska for the halibut...but it's a nice plaice. I just haddock say that.
