I'm trying to conquer my fear of fish, any help appreciated!

So, for the longest time I have been afraid of cooking fish and I am now trying to overcome that fear. I love fish but am afraid I will totally ruin the fish by over/under cooking it. I am thinking of cooking a nice white meat fish or possibly salmon in parchment in the oven. Is this a good method for my first time cooking fish? And do any of you home chefs out there have a fool proof method of cooking fish? My hubby and I eat almost anything, but especially love Asian and Mexican flavors. Thanks!

P.S. We have a pretty good fishmonger in our area as well as a Whole Foods, so I think I am okay there, but would appreciate fish buying tips as well.

Edited to add: I will report back on my attempts with pics!
