What would you do with these fresh caught fish?

Just got back from an all-day fishing trip in the Monterey Bay, and came back with quite a haul! We've got about four and a half pounds of halibut, five of rock cod, and a pound and a half of ling cod. The fish was filleted for us on the wharf, and I cut them into individual servings when we got home. I put most of it in the freezer, since there are only two of us and there's no way we could finish that much fish without freezing. However, I left out two nice-sized fillets of each kind of fish, so my boyfriend and I can enjoy a different one each night for our next three dinners.

Our expert fisherman friend recommended battering with Dixie Fry (is that just seasoned flour, or something else?) and pan-frying in a mixture of canola and peanut oil. What's your favorite way to prepare these kinds of fish?
