  1. Crack the coriander seeds by pressing on them with the bottom of a cast-iron skillet. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, almond extract, the fresh coriander and the seeds. Add the melon and stir thoroughly. Macerate for 1 hour, refrigerated.
  2. Pass the melon and juice through a food mill, or puree in a food processor and then pass through a mesh sieve. Discard the solids.
  3. Add the remaining teaspoon of minced coriander to the liquid and stir. Pour the liquid into 2 pie dishes and place in the freezer for 4 hours. Using a fork, scrape the ice out of the pan, mashing large chunks as necessary. Mound a spoonful on each of 4 plates, garnish with a leaf or two of coriander and serve.
