1. To make the salmon: Preheat the oven to 400˚F. Brush fillet with coconut oil and season with salt and pepper; bake, skin-side down, for 10 minutes and then turn oven to broil and cook for 3–4 minutes or to desired doneness. Transfer to a serving board, and garnish with lemon wedges and watercress.

2. To make the cauliflower rice: Grate cauliflower using the coarse side of a grater, or pulse in a food processor. Add cauliflower and 2 tbsp cold water in a skillet. Increase heat to medium-high, and cover with a lid; cook until tender-crisp, about 4-minutes, stirring once halfway through. Stir in scallions, salt and pepper.

3. To make the miso sauce: Whisk together all the ingredients in a small bowl.

4. Serve sauce alongside the salmon and cauliflower rice, family style.
