1 – Scrub potatoes carefully and rinse. Place in uncovered baking dish. Chop into 1-inch pieces. Season with salt, pepper, rosemary, and olive oil. Add 2 inches of water to the baking dish. Cook (uncovered) for 15 minutes in the microwave on high.
2 – Using a sharp knife, very carefully cut midway through the salmon. Insert sliced mushrooms to cover and a few leaves of spinach. Close salmon and secure with toothpicks. Season with salt, pepper, lemon pepper, and olive oil. Sprinkle a little bit of plain breadcrumbs on top. Finish with a drop of olive oil. Set aside.
3 – Peel scallop squash with a vegetable peeler (some peel will remain, and so wash carefully with soap and water). Slice into 3 serving pieces. Place squash in a plastic bag with a generous amount of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Place one-third cup Italian breadcrumbs in the plastic bag and shake well. Cook on high for 5 minutes in the microwave.
4 – Slice tomato. Season with salt, pepper, basil, and olive oil. Place on serving dish.
5 – Cook salmon for 5 minutes in the microwave on high.
