Divide watercress, tangerines and radishes among dinner plates. 2. In a small bowl, whisk soy with maple syrup, rice vinegar, curry paste and sesame oil. Slice pork into ½-in. (1-cm) rounds, then place in another bowl. Drizzle with about 1 tbsp (15 mL) soy mixture. Stir to coat. 3. Lightly oil a large frying pan, preferably non-stick, and set over medium. When hot, add pork, cooking until golden, about 2 min per side. Lay medallions on watercress salad. When all pork has been removed, pour remaining soy mixture into pan. Stir until warm, about 30 sec. Drizzle over salads.
