Nonstick pans have only two common uses in my kitchen. One is eggs. The other is this :

How to cook delicate fish : fish like sole, red snapper, etc. are a bit tricky to fry unless you use a ton of oil and basically deep fry them. I prefer this low-oil easy to control method. Heat a nonstick pan as hot as is safe for it (medium heat). Dry the fish, salt & pepper it, and rub a thin coating of oil on the fish - no oil in the pan. Put the fish in the pan and turn down the heat, cook about 3 minutes on each side; fish should be "rare", so you're just searing it. After you flip it you can add butter, white wine, whatever you want to dress it.
