Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Peach Salsa

Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Peach Salsa
Serves 4

600 grams of pork tenderloin
8 small or 4 larger skewers (if using wooden skewers soak for at least 30 min to limit burning on grill)

Marinade:
2 Tbsp of vegetable oil (sunflower, canola or rapeseed)
1 Tbsp of soy sauce
1 Tbsp of honey
2 garlic cloves, pressed
½ tsp freshly ground black pepper

Salsa:
4 peaches
2 spring onions
1 red chili (chose the level of hot that suits you)
1 Lime

  • Trim pork tenderloin and cut into 8 slices
  • Using the palm of your hand, punch each slice out to make them about half so thick
  • Mix ingredients to marinade in a mixing bowl
  • Place pork in mixing bowl and ensure the meat is covered in marinade
  • Let the pork marinate at room temperature for at least 30 min
  • Heat up grill to medium-high heat (about 225 degree C, 440 degrees F)
  • After pork is marinated, thread a slice onto the skewers or two slices if using longer skewers.
  • Grill pork skewers for ~3 min, turn them over and grill for another ~3 min. Turn a third time and finish for ~2 min.
  • Note the grilling times are approximately times. Always keep a close eye when grilling and ensure pork is all done by making a small cut and the juice should be clear.
  • Tip: The pork can also be grilled in the oven. Use the bake function for 10 min and then finish off for 2-3 min on grill to give the pork skewers a grilled finish. Watch carefully as some ovens the grill function grills and burns quickly!

Salsa:

  • Cut the peaches in halves and take out the pit.
  • Dice the peaches
  • Finely dice the spring onion and red chili
  • For milder chili, discard seeds
  • Zest the skin of the lime
  • Mix all the above
  • Cut the lime in two and press the limejuice over the mixture

Serve grilled skewers and peach salsa with cooked bulgur or couscous.

Tip! Always handled chili with care! Try different variants to find one fits your taste buds. Some like it mild some hot! I recommend always to use plastic gloves when handling chili as the heat can stay on your hands for days. Gloves like doctors and nurses use, that you can find at the drug store. This is especially important if you use contact lenses as the chili on the hands can irritate your eyes when handling your contacts
