Someone gave me a photocopy of this recipe - unsure of its original source. Note in the US fresh coriander = cilantro.

  4. Toss in the pan for 2 minutes until the fish is just opaque.
  5. In a bowl, mix the remaining ingredients, except the egg, and add the cooked fish.
  6. Add enough beaten egg to bring it together to a softish mixture.
  7. Season with salt & pepper.
  8. Shape into 4 fish cakes.
  9. For the coriander dressing, mix the olive oil, lemon juice and coriander and season to taste, adding more lemon juice if necessary.
  10. To cook the fish cakes, plac a frying pan on a medium heat, heat the remaining oil and put in the fish cakes.
  11. Turn down the heat slightly and cook for 3 - 4 minutes on each side until golden brown on both sides.
  12. Place the fish cakes on two warmed plates and serve with the sauce and the watercress salad drizzled with just enough dressing to make the leaves glisten.
