Toss to coat; arrange in an even layer on one side of the sheet pan. Roast 10 minutes. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk together the miso paste, mirin, and 1 teaspoon of olive oil until smooth. Pat the fish dry with paper towels. Transfer to a plate. Drizzle with olive oil; turn to coat. Arrange skin side down and evenly top with the miso-mirin mixture. Carefully transfer (skin side down) to the other side of the sheet pan of partially roasted cauliflower. Roast 10 to 15 minutes, or until the cauliflower is browned and tender when pierced with a fork and the fish is cooked through.* Remove from the oven.
