First of all, I am committed to liking salmon no matter what. I don't care for the taste, but with my family history of heart disease, I must eat it. I had it one time and I liked it. I've had it a few times and really didn't like it at all. I've tried it in homemade patties (most of what I have tried is home prepared as I can't afford to send back a restaurant dish if I don't like just because of my preference. )

I can't judge if it's good fish or not due to lack of experience. I can say most all of what I would get is fresh due to where I live. Otherwise, I just don't care for the taste. I find it fishy. I live in Southern Oregon, so I don't need to hear about fresh, frozen, farmed, or wild. I am very aware of all of these varieties. I have also had it so fresh, it was swimming only three hours before it was on my grill. Sadly, I didn't even try it but my attitude has changed.

That said, I am looking for opinions here on personal experiences regarding how it was prepared, frozen first or fresh only (remember, asking about fishiness here) and finally wild or farmed (again, taste.) I am not particularly fussy but I do like well prepared food. I can cook well enough so I am open for suggestions. I love many other kinds of ocean fish, raw and cooked. From halibut, mahi mahi, orange roughy, and cod to canned tuna! Thank you for any and all positions on helping me with my quest for salmon I can eat for my health.
