This recipe is EASY and so delicious. Dates, oranges and basil make magic together, especially when piled over a thick, juicy, smoky grilled pork tenderloin. YUM.

For the relish:

  • 2 oranges, peeled and chopped
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 0.5 Tbsp fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 cup pitted date, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp orange juice
  1. To prepare the relish, mix all relish ingredients in a bowl and chill until ready to serve. This can be done up to 4 hours in advance.

For the pork tenderloin:

  • 0.5 tsp pepper
  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Pound pork tenderloins
  • 0.5 tsp coriander
  1. Preheat grill to 400-450F. (Or preheat oven to 425F).
  2. In a skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Season pork by rubbing honey, salt, pepper and coriander over it. Add pork to skillet and cook, turning occasionally, for 3-4 minutes or until all sides are slightly browned.
  3. Grill (or roast) over indirect heat for 40 minutes or until pork is cooked through, turning half way. Transfer pork to a cutting board and let rest for 3 minutes, then slice.
  4. Top with relish and serve.
