A smoked salmon, onion and potato pie. Sadly, my attempt at a fish is more like a whale!

I would really like to learn how to cook fish properly, be it in a pie or frying pan. I can make some rather good salmon cakes and fish/seafood stew, but other than that I struggle.

Bryan, as far as grilling/frying/baking/broiling, assuming everything is hot and ready to go, 7 minutes per inch of thickness no matter the fish, but one eyes and signs prevail. If it flakes it's done. Go beyond that and it's getting overdone. With salmon if the fat denatures (you'll see it weep) that's sign that it's done; skin side down.

Fish is cooked far quicker than what we were told.
