Capilano coho is my first choice then sockeye is my second. We usually steam cook or bbq.

Fresh Pink caught and in the fry pan in a few hours just melts in your mouth.....such an under-rated fish, a blast on the 6 wt too.

Highliner cod loins (caugh in the Arctic Ocean) on the George Foreman. Unreal.

**of course, I've only tried: rainbow, brook trout, sockeye, coho, chinook, pink, Atlantic salmon, snapper, halibut, tuna**

Tuna tataki all the way!
Although smoked sockeye is awesome too.

I heard that smoked white Chinook is unreal but haven't tried it yet. The first I catch this year is going straight to the smoke house  ;D

I'd have to say halibut is pretty tasty then probably capilano Coho next. I've never tasted walleye, maybe oneday.

Now I'm curious, which one are they?

Being an ex commercial fisherman, it had it's privileges.  ;)

1= Breaded Rock Sole for breakfast.
2= Pacific Ocean Perch, flash fried with garlic and soya sauce, served with your favorite toast. makes a great anytime snack
3= Petrole Sole {Brill}, stuffed/rolled with asparagus and garlic herb philly cheese,sprinkled with extra virgin olive oil then baked.
4= Pacific Cod {true cod,grey cod}, a feed of cod tongues are to die for, but the fish itself is excellent for deep frying.
5= Smoked Sablefish {black cod} Steamed until hot throughout or poached with garlic and heavy cream. We'd smoke it right on board the fish boat.
6= Poached Redi Rockfish {ree-die}with a butter sauce and basmatti rice.
7= Yelloweye Rockfish, the true "red snapper" here on the coast. Very hardy fillets that are great to use like you would a scallops and bacon dish, served with home made seafood cocktail sauce. I say I invented this one.  ;D
8= Short Raker Rockfish cheeks {Borialis {boar-e-alice} Rockfish} fried in garlic butter, even better than Halibut cheeks, and the ear {otoliths}bones make nice earrings for your wife or girlfriend too.

That's just 8 I can think of for now, but there are many more.

Mm that sounds like a nice tasty list.

Personally I've never been a big sole fun.

I miss some of the fish I used to find more often on the Mediterranean like sword fish, makrel and sardines
