Simple Salmon, Sauteed Spinach, and Smashed Spuds

On Wednesday, we get our grocery store circulars in the mail, and I was pleased to see that fresh salmon fillets were on-sale. Usually fresh fish is a little out of our budget, but I thought I might splurge a little bit. Since I was getting fresh fish, I decided to do a very simple presentation. I rubbed the fillets with olive oil, salt, and pepper and topped them with thin lemon slices. Then I baked them in a 400-degree oven for about 20 minutes. I served this with sauteed spinach and smashed red potatoes. All in all, I spent under $10 for the two of us, and it was a nice change of pace from our usual dinners.
