Best brand of frozen fish to make homemade filet-o-fish?

I bought some at Costco a few months ago. I don't remember the brand name, but they worked very well for the sandwiches I made, and tasted great.

Non toxic oil for a wooden countertop

I have some of that, and used some recently. It stinks. I much prefer using mineral oil or a mineral oil/beeswax blend. The IKEA stuff doesn't seem to work any better than the others, so why bother with the stink?

Savory Bourbon Sauce to go with Salmon?

My husband came back from a business trip raving about a dinner he had of grilled salmon served with a bourbon sauce. He said he could very much taste the bourbon and the sauce was very dark (that's pretty much all of his description of the sauce). I'd like to try to make something similar but I can't find much in the way of bourbon sauce recipes that would go with salmon. I'm finding a lor of bourbon marinades and dessert type sauces. I'm not looking for a heavy "bourbon taste" so much as just a nice flavorful sauce. Any ideas?

Everything I make taste Like ....crockpot...

I just came across a discussion about the flavor of garlic and onions in a crockpot @metafilter:
I bet it's garlic. I'm a heavy garlic user.

I'm glad to see this posted, I feel the same way about everything except (apple butter) made in my crock pot. It's a ceramic insert model from about 20 yrs ago, bought new and used a few times a year since then. I've tried all sort of different recipes, seasonings (even no seasonings). I never tried a liner as I don't want to cook in plastic.

I recently bought a smaller new model that was on sale for a great price. I haven't tried it yet but I'm hoping it doesn't have the same problem.
