2. Remove stems from spinach leaves. Put about 3 inches of water into a large pot and bring to a boil. Add spinach and stir a couple of minutes just until wilted. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking. Drain well again. Gather a handful of spinach and press water out. Spread on a plate lined with several paper towels. Repeat with remaining spinach.
3. Trim ends from zucchini. Cut into ¼-inch dice and set aside. Cut kernels of corn from cob and set aside. Cut cherry tomatoes in half. Set vegetables aside.
4. Place salmon fillet in a foil-lined baking dish. Drizzle a tablespoon citrus oil over the top and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Bake in a preheated 450-degree oven 12 minutes per inch of thickness, or until cooked through.
5. While the salmon is cooking, heat a tablespoon oil in each of 2 skillets. Set both on medium heat. When hot, add spinach to one and the remaining vegetables to the other. Heat through about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
6. Divide spinach among 4 plates and top each with a piece of salmon. Spoon vegetables around the edge, drizzle with the remaining citrus oil and serve.
