This must be a matter of perception. I've always found salmon to be one of the least offensive to the olfactory. Unless it's more than a few days old, I really don't smell it much.

Now cod or catfish, on the other hand.... pass the clothespin!

I don't like grilled or fried salmon at all. However I could make a of myself with lox, and smoked salmon.
I really like cod..it makes great fish and chips, but I think catfish tastes and smells like dirt.

The worst is boiling salted cod my dad used to like. I gag at that smell.

I've never associated leftovers with one's financial situation. Growing up, leftovers were planned (my mom hated to cook, so if she could cook once and serve the same thing again, she took that route). It made her life easier. I tend to do the same thing--make enough for several meals. I figure if I'm going to heat up the oven, I might as well make two roasted chickens/pork roasts/whatever. It doesn't use any more electricity to cook two than it does to cook one. But then, our electricity rates are the highest in North America. We try to cut back on the electricity bill whenever we can.
Back in the day before our heaths' went south on us, my husband and I ate pretty well and he hardly ever ate leftovers. Now in hard times, (not too hard) he does eat leftovers and there is hardly anything left to throw away. We ate steak a couple of times a week back then and ate take out a couple of times a week, but now steak is seen about once a month if it is on sale and we never eat take out anymore. Hopefully good times will come back again, but we are on a fixed income now and I just don't see it. Life goes on no matter what and we are happy with what we have.

I put my salmon under the broiler with butter pam sprayed on it and crushed rosemary sprinkled on it with a little salt and lemon juice. It is great. Does not take a whole lot of time and it is good.

It's also good with dill weed.

I drizzle salmon steaks with olive oil, sprinkle on salt and pepper and smother it with 1/4" onion slice strips coated with oil to keep them moist while baking. I bake it on my Norpro broiler pan at 425F for 15 min. I fry thinly sliced zucchini and a salad topped with blue cheese dressing.

I bought fresh dill weed and and other herbs commonly used in cooking fish and froze it up in ziplocks.
I'm still trying to get better at cooking fish.

I've never been one to say my mind can't be changed! I may just give salmon a try again with these hints.

Wait.........my mind will never be changed about Brussel Sprouts. I stand firm with those little devils.

Brussel Sprouts? Butter and tons of salt and pepper and they get to tasting...good. It's funny, dishes like those seem more a part of a by-gone era.

Not even bacon can save Brussel Sprouts and bacon can fix almost anything.
