Whatever happened to delicious bass?
Seriously though, the question that has not been addressed here is: What kind of wine?
Am I alone in thinking that salmon is what rosé was made for?
Fresh and raw is ok... Salmon has a very delicate flavour.
After that, there are so many ways to prepare salmon it boggles the mind and most are good.
I like whole salmon baked / steamed and filets are excellent when they are sauteed in butter with white wine, dill, and a little black pepper and pinch of salt and gets better when you serve a savory side dish of dark greens to compliment the salmon's flavour.
We also smoke our own.
No matter how I cook my Salmons, they always end up rubbery. And I keep getting MAFAC arms caught in my teefs.

Actually, any of these sound good. Just not canned.
Summer- Grilled over Apple or cherry wood.
Winter- Baked or poached with egg sauce.
Dry smoked rather than that wet fish slime people eat with bagels.
smoked or grilled.....lightly salted, bit heavy on the pepper, and maybe a little lemon juice. Sometimes a nice Basil Cream sauce goes great.
Served with rice pilaf and a side of brocolli.

Marinate in soy sauce and toasted sesame oil, slather top w/ garlic or ginger, then grill ~20 min (for a filet) at ~350F sitting on a cedar board.
I have tried taking the same prep, wrapping it in foil, and baking it, and while my wife likes it just as much as grilled, or better, she doesn't eat the skin which does not come through the foil wrap bake too well but becomes this amazing smoked salmon chip on the grill...
I also like to smoke it which is a different process.
and this gravlax recipe is fun

Does anyone like poached salmon? I've eaten it cooked this way, and is quite good. But, I've never cooked it myself. Any pointers?

marinate in Pernot (anise liqueor) and chopped fresh dill. Cook on grill, skin side up for most of the time, finish briefly skin side down
Have a piece in the fridge now - will take a stainless steel pan tomorrow night - and melt a little butter in with some olive oil - sizzle each side top and bottom lightly with a little sea salt and cracked black pepper - then put the pan into the oven for a few and bring out medium rare - more on the rare side. YUMMY!!!
