Spiced pork fillet with a mango relish : A great mid-week dinner

"This sweet and fruity pork fillet recipe packs a punch with a chilli, ginger and coriander stuffing and a zingy mango and lime relish. Served with simple seasonal greens, this quick and easy to cook pork recipe makes a great midweek dinner."

Serves Four 
Each serving nutritional information:
Carbohydrate 9.7g Protein 30.3g Fibre 0.3g Fat 14.5g

1 red chilli, chopped
1 tbsp. sweet chilli sauce
1 garlic clove, chopped
3 1/2cm piece ginger, peeled and finely grated
1 x 30g pack fresh coriander
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
500g pork fillet
300g sliced greens

For the relish:
1 mango, flesh diced
1 lime, juiced 

1. Whizz the chilli, sweet chilli sauce, garlic, ginger and coriander in a food processor with ½ tbsp. oil. Cut a 2cm deep pocket down the length of the pork and fill it with most of the mixture. Set the rest aside for later. Cut the pork into four equal pieces.
2. To make the relish, mix the mango and lime juice in a bowl.
3. Heat 1 tbsp. oil in a pan over a medium heat, then cook the pork fillet pieces, turning, for 15 minutes, or until golden and cooked through. Set aside; keep warm.
4. Wipe the pan and set over a high heat. Add the remaining oil. Stir in the greens and cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes, until wilted, adding the remaining chilli and ginger mix for the last 30 seconds. Toss with the relish in the bowl.
5. Cut each piece of pork into 3-4 round slices and serve on top of the greens.

Mangoes, a magical fruit ...

Mangoes are luscious and juicy, and with more than 20 different vitamins and minerals – what’s not to like about mangoes? Having originated in India 5,000 years ago, this tropical fruit is now cultivated in South and Central America, the Caribbean Islands, and other warm areas of the world. 

Mangoes are a wonderful addition to salads, along with other fruits such as mandarin oranges, grapes, apples, and pineapples. Impressive amounts of vitamin C, vitamin A, and flavonoids like beta-carotene, alpha-carotene and beta-cryptoxanthin in mangoes help provide benefits, such as healthy immune function, normal blood pressure, good vision and strong bones, plus added protection from lung, mouth, colon, breast and prostate cancers, leukaemia, and stroke. Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) produces hormones in your brain. 

Mangoes can be made into a delicious sauce for meats, which is just one recipe among hundreds that place this exotic fruit on your table for benefits far beyond good taste. 

However, consume mangoes in moderation because they contain fructose which may be harmful to your health in excessive amounts.

All the best Jan

This would be a delightful meal to enjoy any night of the week, my friend. My family and I are not big on pork so I wonder if the relish would be good on chicken? I don't see why not :)

Hugs to you, Jan!

This recipe caught my attention since I love all-things-mango...... People think that pumpkin is one of my favorite flavors (and it is), but mango is a close 2nd... ha

Thanks for the delicious recipe.

After hearing pigs being transported to the slaughterhouse, I rather doubt I'll ever willingly eat port again.
