  • While the lentils and rice cook, pulse the remaining 1/2 cup almonds in a food processor until coarsely ground. Add the watercress and miso; process until the watercress is coarsely chopped. With the processor running, slowly pour in 1/2 cup EVOO; process until smooth. Season the pesto.

  • Season the salmon fillets lightly with salt. In a large skillet, heat the remaining 1 tbsp. EVOO over medium. Add the salmon to the skillet, skin side down. Cook without moving the salmon until the skin is browned, 5 to 6 minutes. Turn and cook until the salmon is just flaky in the center, 2 to 3 minutes more.

  • Divide the lentil-rice mixture among plates and top with the salmon; drizzle with the pesto. Serve with the lemon wedges.
