Slice cauliflower ½ inch thick and place on a baking sheet coated with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and roast at 400, turning half way through, for 30-40 minutes until browned and cooked through.
Meanwhile make the dressing. In a small saucepan, cook the butter over medium high heat, stirring and swirling until the milk solids turn brown. Immediately remove from the heat and add the celery. Next add the garlic, fish sauce, and lime juice, and maple syrup. Be careful, as it may splatter with the liquid ingredients. Season with a pinch of salt (not too much, the fish sauce is salty), and pepper. Set aside until the cauliflower is done.
Cut the cauliflower into pieces and place in a serving bowl with the cherries and pumpkin seeds. Toss with the dressing, check the seasoning, and garnish with the cilantro. Can be served warm or room temperature (if it's too warm though, the cilantro will wilt, which is fine but not as attractive).
