  • Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 3 ounces pork and 1/3 cup salsa)

Ingredients

  • Pork:
  • 1 tablespoon salt-free Mexican seasoning blend
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 (1-pound) pork tenderloins, trimmed
  • Cooking spray
  • Salsa:
  • 2 cups chopped peeled Uniq fruit (about 1)
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup diced avocado
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Preparation

To prepare the pork, combine the first 6 ingredients in a small bowl. Rub garlic over pork. Rub spice mixture over pork. Cover and chill 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 400°.

Heat a cast-iron or ovenproof grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add pork to pan; cook 4 minutes or until just browned on all sides. Transfer pork to oven. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until a thermometer registers 160° (slightly pink). Let pork stand 10 minutes before slicing. Cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices.

To prepare salsa, combine Uniq fruit and remaining ingredients in a bowl. Cover and chill until ready to serve. Serve pork with salsa.
