Kimberly flavor. So she'd run them through a grinder to get rid of the texture. Similarly, lots of curries start out with onions; when Cook's Illustrated did...
I have and will cook separate meals for my father based on what I know he likes. To not do so I feel would be selfish, especially if he specifically requests something he wants that I don't care for. Salmon is a clbuttic example.
I don't have to eat it, I make myself something else that I like. ;-)
I have found that farm raised salmon is actually pretty good. Milder in taste, more similar to lake trout.

I've tried........ and may still try again, just try a different way of preparing them.
Prep. seems to be the key. Some foods, prepared wrong, are gross. Done right, they are delicious! Therefore I still keep to my rule of at least trying/tasting something before turning my nose up at it, even if it's a food I normally cannot stand.
The one exception is bell peppers! I have yet to ever find a way to prepare those where that nasty flavor is not overwhelming. :-(
Dad likes them raw, and they have to be ripe. Red only, no green. -- Peace! Om
