Panfried salmon on a bed of Moroccan cauliflower rice with a tomato, goats cheese and watercress salad

I've lost count of the number of times I've bought cauliflowers intending on making cauliflower rice, and then ended up chucking them out. But when I got the recipe for Moroccan cauliflower rice from my friend and awesome fellow trainer Nisha Obaidullah, I decided I was finally going to try it out.  And I wasn't disappointed.
