Baked Salmon with Spinach

We order a lot of our seafood from SeaBear, they had a special for Mother's Day which was a shipment of Fresh Wild Spring King Salmon from Alaska.  I patiently awaited the UPS truck with the shipment of fresh salmon, this is what we were having for dinner tonight.  I didn't take into account that it was in fact Mother's Day this weekend and that the UPS driver would have a lot of packages to deliver, which meant mine would come much later than normal.  Have no fear the truck arrived we came inside opened the box and the cooler to find beautiful fresh fish.  Immediately I placed 2 of the filets onto a pan to cook.

Preheat oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit.  Place salmon onto a cookie sheet lined with foil (I only do this because it makes clean up easier), drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Place in oven and bake for 20 minutes.

Along with the salmon I fixed wilted spinach.  Heat a skillet over medium heat, add olive oil.  We bought a bag of fresh spinach from the Land and Table event that we went to on Tuesday.  It was a gorgeous bag of spinach.   Add spinach to skillet, it won't look like all the spinach will fit but it will, turn the spinach with a pair of tongs, flipping the spinach over and around so that it cooks.  Cook until the spinach is wilted but not mushy.
