1 (10-ounce) jar apricot preserves
2 tablespoons lower-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 (1-pound) pork tenderloins, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Cooking spray


1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

2. Place preserves in a 2-cup glass measure. Microwave at HIGH 1 minute, stirring after 30 seconds. Stir in soy sauce, juice, and garlic. Place 3/4 cup apricot mixture in a large zip-top plastic bag; reserve remaining apricot mixture. Add pork to bag, and seal. Marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes. Remove pork from bag, and discard marinade. Thread pork evenly onto 16 (8-inch) skewers. Sprinkle pork evenly with salt and black pepper. Set aside 1/4 cup apricot mixture. Place pork on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; baste with half of remaining apricot mixture. Grill 3 1/2 minutes. Turn pork over; baste with other half of remaining apricot mixture. Grill 3 1/2 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Remove pork from grill. Brush with reserved 1/4 cup apricot mixture.
