I have seen a few places in the PNW making fish and chips from salmon. I have never tried it but I know there was a place that I went to frequently where it was a regular menu item. I can’t remember where.
I like corn and salmon chowder this time of year. I don’t know that, that would qualify as not common.

Great ideas, y’all. Many thanks.
Well, given I’ve never even heard of salmon/corn chowder, it definitely qualifies as not common to me!
For salmon fillets I almost always poach as others have already suggested. I normally bring a pan of water to the boil, pop in the fillets and then turn the heat off and pop on a lid. I leave in for 10 mins and they always come out nicely. They’re quite thin fillets as a rule so thicker ones may require a different approach.
In summer I like to serve them with a leek, sweated off in butter, then a little vermouth or white wine added and frozen broad beans and peas.
This or over rice and kimchi , with charred spring onions, a fried egg and a few squirts hoisin and sriracha.
Not a fan of salmon in ceviche, but cakes and chowders can be great. Almost everything else I do with it is pan cooked… whether it be a Benedict, Rockefeller, salad, pan fried chunks in bourbon sauce, or blackened.
Ina Garten has a “breaded” salmon recipe that’s great: google “panko-roasted salmon”.
I nearly always slow roast salmon in the oven at 275. Sometimes with butter, soy and lemon, sometimes with chili crisp, sometimes with very old Moosewood recipe with fermented black beans, garlic, ginger, soy, rice vinegar, sesame oil and scallions for garnish.
If you want to take dinner in a non-Asian direction, slow roast with butter and dry white wine or vermouth.
I don’t know if this falls within the parameters of what the OP was looking for, but it’s my absolute favorite way to eat salmon, it’s very simple/easy and always a hit with my friends whether they be Japanese people here or Americans back home. And I’ve never accidentally overcooked it.
