Lemon Mint Pork Tenderloin
Serves 4-6
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes

• 1 tbsp (15 ml) grated lemon rind
• 3 tbsp (45 ml) each lemon juice, extra-virgin olive oil and liquid honey
• 1 tbsp (15 ml) chopped fresh mint
• 1 clove garlic, minced
• 2 pork tenderloins (each 12 oz/375 g)
• 1/4 tsp (1 ml) each salt and pepper

In large bowl, whisk together lemon rind and juice, oil, honey, mint and garlic. Add pork, turning to coat; cover and refrigerate for 10 minutes or for up to 8 hours.

Place pork on greased grill over medium-high heat; brush with any remaining marinade. Close lid and grill, turning once, until juices run clear when pork is pierced and just a hint of pink remains inside, 15 to 20 minutes.

Transfer to cutting board and tent with foil; let stand for 5 minutes before carving into 1 cm-thick slices. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
