Can You Cook Something You Don't Like?

Are you able to cook something that you don't like for someone else?

Tonight I plank smoked a nice hunk of salmon:

I rubbed it with olive oil, seasoned it with McCormick's Seafood Rub (actually very good for a mainstream commercial product), and put it on a soaked plank in the Egg for 20 minutes at 400f. Every 5 minutes, I basted it with a mixture of 2 tbs sherry, 2 tbs honey and 1 tbs soy sauce.

It came out just about perfect

I tasted it and knew it was seasoned right and perfectly done. Only thing is, I can't eat salmon (or most fish, except mahi mahi). I know what it's supposed to taste and feel like, I just don't like it.

The family devoured it and not a scrap was left. I just ate the potatoes, asparagus, and grilled romaine caeser salad that I made, happy that they enjoyed the salmon.

So how about you? Is there something that you cook for others, and do it well, even though you won't eat it?
