 Used to catch salmon as a pro, one day a week we all would take one home ,cook it up and bring it back the next day to compare recipes. Most were pretty good but others were really shit.

So after retiring and fishing as a recreational fisher, I still love to catch them and take them home to eat. Most people have had a bad experience or heard of others experiences and bad mouth their eating qualities but if you experiment with cooking them you will find they are not so bad

 I'm a chef of 20+ years experience. I rate them on the chew if done right. There a very temperamental product though. They need to be fresh (like that morning caught), bled, red meet cut out, put on ice straight after capture and cooked right. If any of these steps aren't don't right they go crap.

Below is a vid of a Japanese American chef's adventures in NZ. The fish prep starts around 20mins in. Looks OK to me.
